    Herb Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe

    It’s Monday which means I should probably enjoy and share something a little healthier than the meltaway muffins and cheesecake bread we have over the weekend. Life’s all about balance, right?

    I tend to eat a lot more salad during the school year since I don’t have to turn around and make the girls’ lunch, too. This herb vinaigrette dressing is a great go-to for salads and is full of flavor, without a lot of effort.

    An Easy Salad Dressing Prepared In No Time

    One of many things I use my mini processor for is to make salad dressings. It finely chops the ingredients and combines all in one and allows me to quickly make my Apple Chipotle Vinaigrette, Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette and of course this Herb Vinaigrette in a few minutes or less.

    How to Customize Vinaigrette Dressing

    This recipe is easily adaptable depending on your taste – do you like your dressing slightly tangy or prefer more oil? I prefer it on the tangy side but made this herb vinaigrette balanced. I hope you love it, too!

    Is Homemade Vinaigrette Dressing Worth It?

    So go ahead, you’ve got this! It will just take a minute, I promise, and you can save it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks!
