French Vinaigrette

A classic French vinaigrette is made with olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced shallot, and Dijon mustard. It’s quick & simple to make and pairs well with most salads.

French Vinaigrette

A French vinaigrette is traditionally whisked together in the bottom of a large salad bowl, then lettuce is added to the bowl and gently tossed to evenly coat the greens, while leaving any excess dressing at the bottom of the bowl. You can also make the vinaigrette in advance and drizzle over your salad too. This simple and delicious French vinaigrette paired nicely with a mixed spring green salad with toasted pine nuts and shaved parmesan.

    1. Beth,

      Thank you for letting me know it was missing! I’ve corrected the recipe to show 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard.

    The technique of whisking the dressing in the salad bowl can help to distribute the flavors more evenly throughout the salad. Making the vinaigrette in advance can save time and allow for easy dressing of the salad when desired.
