Red Wine Vinaigrette

This easy and quick red wine vinaigrette is made with a 1:1 ratio of acid (vinegar and lemon juice) to oil, so it's slightly tangier than most other salad dressings. Give it a try and see what you think!
Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Course: Salad
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Servings: 1 cup


  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (~2 medium lemons)
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Combine red wine vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and garlic in a small bowl.
  • Slowly add the olive oil, whisking continuously.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!


Add the oil in a slow and steady stream for the best emulsion. Pause and taste as you go; if the vinaigrette is too tangy, add more oil to taste. 
If the vinaigrette is too tangy, add a little honey, agave, or maple syrup to taste. 
Use fresh garlic over pre-chopped. It makes a huge flavor difference!
