Everyday Simple Vinaigrette

Simple Dill Vinaigrette (use the everyday vinaigrette, plus..)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs (dill, mint, basil, etc.), minced


  • Add all ingredients to a blender, mason jar with a tightly sealed lid, or small bowl and blend, shake or whisk until well combined.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.


  • If using fresh ingredients such as shallots, fresh herbs, or lemon juice, store in the fridge for up to one week.
  • Once refrigerated, some separation may occur, so shake or stir to combine before using.
  • The balsamic uses the 3:1 ratio whereas the everyday simple vinaigrette uses the 2:1 ratio.
