DIY Lemon Vinaigrette

September 7, 2021

Making your own salad dressing is very simple, and learning this quick-skill is a wonderful way to up your salad game. (If you’re looking for more salad inspiration, be sure to checkout our Master Salad Guide). The lemon vinaigrette recipe below is as flexible as it is delicious. No lemon? Substitute lime, grapefruit, or an acid like red wine vinegar. No maple? Use sugar or honey! For a very quick homemade dressing experience without extra dishes, we love to whisk the dressing directly in the bowl that we’re going to toss the salad in. The recipe below makes enough dressing for about 2 large salads or 4-5 side salads.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Whisk all the ingredients together until completely emulsified, or incorporated. Now it’s time to assemble your Master Salad!
