Garlic Dijon Vinaigrette Recipe

Meet Your Go-To Salad Dressing

Although my fridge is stocked with all sorts of sauces and condiments, the one thing you won't find is bottled salad dressing. Why? It's really easy to make a simple and delicious vinaigrette. It takes only a couple of minutes to make and is far healthier than anything processed.

While there are tons of recipes out there, this one — which comes from my girlfriend Sonia — is my everyday vinaigrette. It's a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and Dijon mustard.

Sometimes I'll throw in chopped herbs or a few tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese or a shallot instead of garlic; feel free to make the recipe your own.
