My go-to salad dressing, this lemon garlic vinaigrette is a staple in my kitchen. It's super versatile and goes with just about any salad you enjoy. It also makes a great marinade for meats and seafood, and is perfect for drizzling on roasted vegetables!


  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or minced
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a  jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake!
  2. Alternatively, you can combine all of the ingredients except for the olive oil and stir. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to emulsify.
  3. Keep stored in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
