Red Wine Vinegar Salad Dressing

  • Author: Katie Webster
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 scant cup 1x


This 5-minute recipe is tangy, easy to make, and only requires a few basic kitchen staples. Pour this homemade red wine vinegar salad dressing over your favorite salad combination and get ready to be wowed!



2 tablespoons finely minced shallot

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or more to taste

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground pepper

2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Whisk shallot, vinegar, Dijon, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl until the Dijon is completely broken down and incorporated into the liquids.
  2. Gradually whisk in oil in a slow steady stream while constantly whisking to emulsify the dressing.
  3. Drizzle over salad or add greens directly to the bowl. Use immediately or transfer to a jar and keep refrigerated up to 1 week. Whisk again before using.


This recipe makes enough for about 20 cups of loosely packed greens or less for a more generously dressed salad.

Make Ahead: To use a refrigerated vinaigrette that has become solid, place the jar in a bowl of warm tap water to bring it to room temperature. You may need to replace the water once or twice to keep it warm enough. Once the dressing is melted, shake it vigorously in the jar before drizzling it over the salad.
