Lemon Vinaigrette

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

This easy homemade dressing is the perfect base for many different flavors and use in many different 


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until well combined and emulsified. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, bringing to room temperature before using. 


Tips and Tricks: You can also whisk the dressing together or place in a blender for faster emulsion. Also taste and adjust the salt/pepper level as desired. I like to make a one-bite salad with the dressing as flavors can change based on the salad components.
