The Best Lemon Vinaigrette
If you were to ask me what recipe I make the most often, it would be this lemon vinaigrette. This vinaigrette is a staple in my house and if I could bottle it and sell it, I would! This is the honestly the BEST AND SIMPLEST VINAIGRETTE and is my GO-TO for EVERYTHING! This lemon vinaigrette literally takes 5 minutes to make, and has no added sugar or other random ingredients that you can’t pronounce.
This vinaigrette is what makes my lacinato kale salad the bomb! I love using a high quality EVOO such as this one from Amphora for vinaigrettes, as it elevates the flavor. Regardless of what EVOO you purchase, make sure it’s pure olive oil, as some store bought brands are blends and those can contain canola oil or other refined oils, (yuck) so be sure to check the label.
I make this vinaigrette at least 4-5 times a week and toss it on everything from salads to my random millet and quinoa lunch combinations. If you follow me on instagram then you’ve been seeing all the lunches I’ve been tossing this vinaigrette with. See below combination of quinoa, roasted peppers, sautéed leftover zucchini, squash, chicken and spinach.
I toss it with sautéed kale, spinach, roasted red peppers, roasted broccoli and quinoa. This vinaigrette just adds that extra pop of flavor and brings everything together.
Once you start making your own vinaigrette, you won’t go back to store bought dressings.
