My Favorite Vinaigrette Dressing + Superfood Giveaway Winner Announced!!!
This recipe is for Jill and Sarah – it is my very basic, go-to salad dressing. It’s adapted from the beautiful Mozza Cookbook. It is always a hit and oh so easy to make!
- 1/4 cup minced shallots or red onion
- juice of 3 lemons
- 1 – 2 Tbs White Wine vinegar
- 1/2 – 1 cup olive oil
- 1-2 dropperfuls of stevia or 1-2 tsps honey/maple syrup
- 1 tsp dijon mustard (optional)
- 1 tsp sea salt or more to taste
- fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 4 Tbs minced cilantro or herb(s) of choice – optional
Combine the shallots, lemon juice, vinegar and salt in a small bowl or mason jar. Set aside to marinate for 5-10 mins. This step is KEY! The marinated shallots are what make this dressing really POP! I love the marinated shallots so much that I typically double or even triple the amount of shallots listed.
Next add the rest of the ingredients and shake/wisk together thoroughly. Taste and adjust flavors as needed.
I always make my dressings in a mason jar. That way I can just screw on the lid and shake. It makes it so much easier, and no extra dishes to clean up! The finished product will look something like this:
The fun thing about this dressing is that everything is just an approximation and can be modified. If you want a sweet dressing, add more stevia, honey or maple syrup. If you like it a little more tart add more lemon juice or white vinegar. If you’re in the mood for an Italian Style dressing use basil and oregano instead of cilantro. Subbing dill for the cilantro is another tasty variation.
Toss with your favorite mixed greens and enjoy!!
