Ingredients for the best vinaigrette recipe

While this recipe is super tasty on a salad, it works great as a marinade as well!  Just pour it on salad, chicken, fish, potatoes, roasted veggies or whatever else you can think of.  It’s so versatile.

Vegetables are great, but grilling vegetables are even more delicious.  If you can grill outside all year long, you have to try these two grilled vegetable recipes:

One of the best things about making this vinaigrette is that there are a ton of substitutions and modifications you can make.  See below for just a few of them:

  • You can use white vinegar or red wine vinegar in place of apple cider vinegar
  • You can replace honey with apricot jam or even raspberry or strawberry jelly
  • Consider adding 1/2 tsp. of oregano or thyme (this is what I do when I’m making the dressing for this spinach salad with a soft boiled egg and bacon)

This is so helpful to have the option to make substitutions, especially if you’re out of one ingredient.  Each little tweak will change the flavor a bit, so you can make a variety of different vinaigrettes and see which on you like the best!

The most amazing and easy vinaigrette

When you’ve made a batch of this vinaigrette dressing, we love to store it in one of these Weck jars.  They seal air tight, which is essential in keeping this dressing fresh.  If you’re able to cover the dressing in any type of air tight container, you can keep this for up to 4 weeks in your refrigerator! 

And just a quick note that, in the refrigerator, the dressing will likely separate and that’s ok!  When you’re ready to use it, just whisk it back together and enjoy.
