This salad dressing is my go-to because it’s super simple and most of the time I have all of the ingredients stocked in my refrigerator and pantry. We usually make a big salad a few times a week and this dressing is what I pair with it 9 times out of 10. It adds the perfect amount of flavor without being too overpowering or vinegary. Plus, it’s one of the more healthy salad dressings you can choose. It’s a win-win!

How to Make Citrus Herb Vinaigrette

Step 1: Combine Ingredients. There are a few ways you can do this part depending on the equipment you have!

  • In a Bowl: In a liquid measuring cup or bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Stir well with a small whisk or a fork until the ingredients are completely mixed together.
  • Mason Jar: Place all ingredients in a mason jar and shake to combine until creamy.
  • In Food Processor: Add all of the ingredients except for herbs to a food processor. Combine until dressing is emulsified then stir in the herbs.

Step 2: Serve immediately, or cover and place in refrigerator for future use. Vinaigrette will last in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.

This dressing has a light, zippy flavor and is super universal. I put Citrus Herb Vinaigrette on this Grilled Chicken, Vegetable and Avocado Salad Board, a simple Chopped Salad or pretty much anytime I’m making a Salad Platter. I prefer to go ahead and put the dressing on my salad, but my kids love to dip! Somehow they’ve turned salad into finger food! I don’t mind how they eat it though! As long as they’re getting their veggies, I’m a happy mama.

Another reason I love a classic vinaigrette dressing is because it’s not just for salad. You could use this recipe as a marinade for chicken, and it’s out of this world! I like to make a batch of this dressing to use throughout the week on salads or for a quick marinade. It keeps in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days, so it’s great to make ahead to have it on hand whenever you need it.
