How to make a vinaigrette salad dressing and customize it to your liking. This master recipe may be used as a salad dressing or meat marinade.
Add the vinegar or lemon juice to a medium bowl, or a mason jar. Add the salt, pepper, and any desired custom options.
Slowly add the olive oil, vigorously whisking as you pour the oil into the bowl. Whisk until the ingredients are well combined (30 seconds to 1 minute of whisking).
Use the dressing immediately, or store in the fridge for about 7-14 days. If you used fresh ingredients (like fresh herbs), 7 days is my max. If you used shelf-stable ingredients (like vinegar and oil with some dried herbs), 14 days is my max. Use the dressing on salads or as a meat marinade (such as: chicken breasts) before cooking the meat. A vinaigrette is also lovely to drizzle over warm roasted veggies (after cooking).
*Alternatively, you can use fresh herbs in a vinaigrette dressing. Dill is particularly delicious, but any fresh herb will work depending on the flavor you wish to achieve. I recommend a couple of tablespoons when using fresh herbs.
Note: Salad dressing made with real olive oil will solidify in the fridge. To use the dressing, place the jar on the counter until liquid and then shake or whisk the ingredients. Or, place the jar in hot water until the ingredients return to a liquid state, then whisk ingredients or shake the jar.
