It is so easy to make your own vinaigrette! With just 6 simple ingredients and a whisk, this Garlic Vinaigrette will be on your new go-to recipe!
I recently had my video for Garlic Cheese Bread go viral on Facebook and a few people left comments like “TOO MUCH GARLIC”.
My first thought: Is that a thing?
Not in my world.
So it would make sense that I also like my dressings garlicky too, right? Right. And this Garlic Vinaigrette is simple vinaigrette perfection.
To make a traditional vinaigrette dressing you don’t need a lot of ingredients. The basic vinaigrette ratio is 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil. After that your seasonings are all up to you.
For this recipe you’ll need: olive oil, vinegar, garlic, stone ground mustard, salt and pepper. I use a garlic stone ground mustard for extra garlic flavor (see above about garlic obsession) but any stone ground mustard will do.
Because there are so few ingredients, it is essential that you use the best quality ingredients that you can find, especially the oil.
For this garlic vinaigrette recipe that means using quality olive oil. A few months ago, I found kalamata olive oil and it is my new favorite. It is smooth and less bitter than other olive oils that I tried. That being said, any extra virgin olive oil that you love will work in this recipe.
You guys, it could not be easier to make vinaigrette! All you have to do is whisk together all the ingredients until they are emulsified. I like to let mine set for about 20 minutes before using and then whisk once more.
Obviously, vinaigrette is used most often on salads. But you can also use this garlic vinaigrette on grilled or roasted vegetables, as a marinade for chicken or to drizzle over grilled fish.
This garlic vinaigrette salad dressing should keep in your refrigerator for about a week.
Combine all ingredients together and whisk until emulsified.
