Shallot Mustard Vinaigrette


This zingy Shallot Mustard Vinaigrette made with lemon juice and white wine vinegar, has a creamy texture thanks to a bit of Dijon mustard. Use it to dress your salad or drizzle it on an avocado. We recommend allowing the shallot to steep in the liquids for a full 10 minutes to soften it and mellow its zingy bite.

Store bought salad dressing can be a short cut for many folks. But with the artificial ingredients and preservatives they include, they just don’t match up to the quality of a home made dressing. And this vinaigrette will store well for a long length of time in the refrigerator. Whether you’re craving spinach, romaine, ice berg or a bed of spring greens, this Shallot Mustard Vinaigrette will pair well with any of them.
