Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette
This Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette is so amazingly good you'll want to drink it by itself! A bright, healthy salad dressing recipe made with fresh lemon juice, Dijon mustard and basil. A serious must-try!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
- 5 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon basil finely chopped
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 3 teaspoons sugar
Add all ingredients to a salad dressing shaker and shake!
If you don't have a salad dressing shaker, add lemon juice and Dijon mustard to a bowl and whisk until blended. Slowly add the extra virgin olive oil, whisking the entire time. After blended, add all remaining ingredients and blend.
I know the 1 part to 3 part ratio is a little off here, but I wanted this to have a little extra lemon flavor. The true 1:3 ratio would use 4 tbsp of lemon juice.
Dressing should be kept refrigerated and will last for up to one week.
