Favorite Recipe: French Vinaigrette

April 3, 2010

If you’re sick of paying for $3-4 dollar high calorie store-bought salad dressings and keep getting frustrated by ingredient lists that seem only to include the following: canola oil, soybean oil, etc… then this is the right recipe for you!  It is super easy to make, light and refreshing, healthy, and you can easily store in a leftover jar or dressing container in the fridge for weeks at a time!  This is definitely a bargain too, since many of us already have olive oil on hand in the kitchen, and lemons are usually easy to find year-round and not too expensive.  In the long run…probably cheaper than your average store-bought option.  A little goes a long way too!  It’s great on all kinds of salads, roasted vegetables…you name it!

  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp fresh ground pepper

Shake and pour!

Other Options: Instead of doing all lemon juice, substitute 1/4 red wine vinegar or 1/4 cup balsamic!  Add fresh herbs, like oregano, to spice things up!
