Homemade French vinaigrette dressing gives your vegetables the perfect tang. Pairs great with most green salads.
I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. We are well into January now, and back on track from the busy holiday season. I’ve been really enjoying salads lately, and always looking for ways to change them up. One way I like to eat salads is by using different dressings, so I don’t get too tired of eating them the same way. I’ve been making this French vinaigrette a lot because it’s a nice to change to the dressing I normally use.
What is French Vinaigrette Dressing?
French dressings are made with an oil and vinegar base. Common combinations include, dijon mustard, salt, minced shallots, and garlic.
This is a pretty simply simple dressing to put together. It uses several fresh ingredients too, which makes it taste fresher than store bought dressing.
