salad with lemon vinaigrette

Basic Lemon Vinaigrette


  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4 1x

Description

This easy lemon vinaigrette recipe has maple syrup for extra flavor and is done in just 10 minutes. Make a double or triple batch for meal prep and enjoy easy salads all week long!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (see note)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Shake all ingredients in a jar or whisk together in a bowl. Taste, and add more salt if you'd like.
  2. That's it. That's salad dressing. Serve over your favorite salad!

Notes

For sweetness, I love maple syrup in this, but sub any sweetener you like! Honey or agave work particularly well in this dressing.

Same for mustard - use anything you like! Dijon, stone ground, brown, or spicy mustard are all delicious in this.

This is also wonderful as a marinade for chicken breast, just double the batch and marinate for 30 minutes or so before grilling or pan-searing some chicken.
