  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (this would typically be 3 times as much but I like it super zesty and just use a little on the salad)
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar of modena (or any light vinegar, e.g. white wine, rice, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt (can adjust to your taste)


  • Add olive oil, vinegar, juice from lemon, salt, and a little fresh pepper to a pint mason jar.
  • Shake and pour over your favorite salads!


Okay, I know I go against the basic 3:1 ratio for vinaigrettes but I really like mine on the tart/fresh side and just use a little over the salad. For a more traditional recipe you can use 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar/lemon juice.
You can add anything you want to it, fresh herbs, garlic, etc. I like a bit of fresh garlic and fresh thyme for a slightly different take.
