Classic Vinaigrette Dressing

Classic Vinaigrette Dressing


This dressing is really simple to make and it’s always a big hit when I’m entertaining.  It’s my husband’s favourite and I’ve stopped buying store bought dressing for a few years now because we love it so much. It is made from natural ingredients that I always have around the house and seriously takes just 5 mins to make.

I love that it is made using apple cider vinegar, has no added preservatives, and it’s made with heart healthy olive oil.  As some of you may know, apple cider vinegar has many nutritional benefits.  It helps to detoxify the body, aids in weight loss, balances your pH levels, and helps to balance blood sugars.  The list really goes on and on for apple cider vinegar so I try to incorporate it in my recipes when I can.  I do add honey to mine as I like a tiny bit of sweetness to balance out the tanginess of the dressing but if you are trying to cut sugar or like your dressing tart feel free to skip the honey!


2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 lemon juiced

1 clove of garlic minced

1/2-1 tbsp honey

1/3 olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 dash of pepper to taste


Mix together all ingredients except for the olive oil.  Once mixed slowly whisk in your olive oil or blend in a blender.  Separation is normal after it has been sitting for a period of time. Just whisk up or shake your dressing in a jar to emulsify.

*This dressing can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and yeilds approx 1/2 cup when prepared.  I put mine in a sealed mason jar so I have dressing on hand when I need it!

I hope you enjoy it!

  1. This seems so ‘delish’ with the honey and apple cider vinegar. I’m definitely going to try it. I like light dressings.
