All-Purpose Vinaigrette Recipe

All-Purpose Vinaigrette Recipe

My favorite optional flavor additions, which you can use to make this recipe your own, include: chopped fresh herbs, monk fruit sweetener, Dijon mustard, minced shallots, crushed red pepper flakes, and anchovy paste added to taste.

  • 2 tablespoons vinegar of your choice (red wine, white wine, balsamic, or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 small clove of garlic, peeled and finely minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Combine the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Taste for acid balance. If needed, add additional olive oil, monk fruit sweetener, or vinegar as desired.
