It struck us that quite a few people we know don’t know how easy it is to make a shaker vinaigrette. There’s no whisking in a bowl, no blender or food processor to clean. All you need is the vinaigrette ingredients and a jar. And if your goal this January is to eat more healthy salads without the calorie-laden bottled dressing, this is a great tip. Thanks to Colavita for reminding us!

RECIPE: SHAKER VINAIGRETTE

This is a fancy vinaigrette, with layers of flavor. For a quick version, just add oil and vinegar—we recommend balsamic or red wine vinegar—salt and pepper, and a shake or two of your favorite dried herbs.
 
Ingredients

  • 2 small shallots, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Zest and juice of 1 small lemon
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • Pinch of dried basil
  • Optional: dash of hot sauce
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  •  
    Preparation

    1. COMBINE the shallots, garlic, mustard, honey, vinegar, water, zest, oregano, basil, EVOO, and salt and pepper in a medium-size jar. Screw the lid on tightly and shake until the dressing is emulsified. That’s it!

    2. STORE unused vinaigrette in the jar in the fridge, for up to 3 weeks. Once stored, the EVOO may solidify. To use, let it warm at room temperature or under warm water.
