Easy Homemade Herbed Vinaigrette

Category: Blog, Recipes • Mar 28 2017

There’s nothing better than making your own condiments!  It’s a forgotten, old fashioned kitchen standard that has gotten lost in this fast-paced world.  Here’s an extremely versatile and easy vinaigrette recipe that your family is sure to love!


Because we love healthy and easy, try this easy homemade herbed vinaigrette on cold, crisp salads, seasonal roasted or grilled vegetables, and as a chicken and beef marinade!  Or, drizzle a generous amount over wild caught salmon, fresh jumbo shrimp and scallops before popping it into the oven at 375 degrees.  It is sure to add that extra layer of zing to your favorite seafood!  We love making our own vinaigrette because we have the choice in the ingredients.

Choose organic herbs and spices from your local farms or grocer, and raw or organic vinegars and oils from brands you trust.  What’s best, this recipe is amazingly versatile!  Add basil and oregano for an Italian theme, or mint for seafood!  It’s such an economical and healthy way of adding a punch to your family’s favorite foods!  Store in an air-tight mason jar and place in the refrigerator for two days.  We hope you enjoy it!
