How to Make Your Own Vinaigrette Salad Dressing [Video]

see more by

Have you ever made your own vinaigrette?  You probably have most of the ingredients already in your kitchen, it’s fresher than the store bought options (some have 20+ ingredients!) and something about it feels fancy!   Oh, and did I mention how fast & easy it is?

Here’s a video of an awesome basic kitchen skill to add to your repertoire~

What you need:

1/4 cup White or Golden Balsamic Vinegar (or vinegar of your choice)

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon shaved shallot (or onion)

2 tsp brown sugar

salt & fresh ground pepper

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Ready, Set Whisk!

Whisk together everything but the Olive Oil until well combined.  Then gradually whisk in the Olive Oil.

Use right away or store in the refrigerator for about 1 week.

Let come to room temperature a bit before tossing with your fave greens & veggies!
