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?

I know I’ve talked about this before, but if you haven’t tried making your own salad dressing yet, trust me, it’s life-changing. A fresh homemade vinaigrette makes the salad. I’ve yet to find a bottle that compares.

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!

Even better, it’s low carb, Keto, vegetarian and dairy free!

What Salads Go Best With Herb Vinaigrette?

The better question is what doesn’t go with this salad dressing. You can really add this to any salad you want because the flavors are so versatile. It makes this dressing pair well with any of your favorite leafy greens.

Try it with some of these classics; Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Avocado Salad, or Garlicky Orange Kale Salad.
