This Basic Vinaigrette is quick and easy to make

One thing I really love is a good salad with lots of ingredients and a heart healthy salad dressing.  I have a few favorite vinaigrettes, but this Basic Vinaigrette is the one that I make most often.  It’s easy to make and I always have the ingredients on hand.  

 

The basics to remember when making a vinaigrette is one part vinegar (or lemon juice) mixed with three to four parts oil. Such as 1/4 cup vinegar (or lemon juice) to 3/4 cup oil.

VINAIGRETTE RECIPE

  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

HOW TO MAKE VINAIGRETTE

  1. You can add the ingredients to a mason jar and vigorously shake to mix, or add the ingredients to a bowl and blend with a wire whisk. 
  2. This basic vinaigrette is also really good if you add finely minced sun dried tomatoes and kalamata olives to the mix.
