Enjoy tasty salads with my homemade Red Wine Vinaigrette Dressing recipe!
I’m still in Switzerland, but before I left I put this together for you! Stop by Instagram to see what I’ve been up to.
I’ve really been enjoying making my own salad dressings. I swear that once you get the hang of it, it really doesn’t take much time and tastes so delightful. The gorgeous fresh flavors can’t compare to anything else you’ll get. I’ll still keep some bottles around for a pinch (because we are all human!,) but making my own has been my jam.
This simple dressing only uses 4-5 ingredients depending on how you make it. The red wine vinegar and lemon really shine in it! If you don’t like lemon, you can leave that out but I think it adds something bright and flavorful without adding any calories or fat. You also have the option of adding a little dried oregano for extra flavor if you’d like.
Make a batch of the dressing early in the week and enjoy it for days. It just needs a nice shake before serving. It’s fun to keep it in a mason jar in the fridge so you can shake it easily.
This dressing would be wonderful on basically any kind of mixed green salad and is light enough for even tender greens like arugula. It will not overpower your salad or greens, which is exactly what you want sometimes.
This dressing also goes great with my favorite Mediterranean Quinoa Salad which I’ll be sharing Thursday!
I hope you enjoy and as always I’d love to know what you think!
