Reasons to love this recipe
- it's made from clean, simple pantry ingredients
- it takes 5 minutes to make
- it adds so much flavor to your salad!
- Red wine vinegar- we just opted for whatever is available in the grocery store aisle, but you can get a whole lot fancier than that! Here’s a great review from Cook’s Illustrated of the best red wine vinegars.
- Olive oil - we opt for a quality extra virgin olive oil in any vinaigrette recipe
- Dijon - while I’m not a fan of mustard, it is a key ingredient in any of our vinaigrette recipes! Not only does it add some depth of flavor, but it helps to keep the oil and vinegar from immediately separating (though they do over time).
- Maple syrup or honey - can be used interchangeably for some sweetness without refined sugar
- Herbs & spices - basil & oregano to give that characteristic Greek flavor to the dressing, and onion + garlic powder to give it some savory umami
