Lemon Herb Vinaigrette is an easy-to-make and tangy addition to salad greens. Throw all the ingredients in a canning jar and shake up!!

Lemon Herb Vinaigrette


This dressing is good on so many different foods. Try it on salad greens (naturally), baked or grilled fish, grilled chicken, shrimp, and pasta salad.


First, add all the ingredients together in a bowl except the olive oil. Next, add the oil. When incorporating the oil, don’t add it all at once. While whisking, slowly add the olive oil in a slow stream until it’s all added and the vinaigrette is emulsified.

I most often have one of my boys help with easy things like this in the kitchen. Alternately, you can add all the ingredients to a canning jar, place the lid on tightly and shake until the ingredients are combined and smooth.


  • Keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.
  • Homemade dressings don’t have preservatives in them. Therefore, they will last up to two weeks. (Using it won’t be hard though because you’ll want to put it on everything!)
