This Tarragon Vinaigrette turns a basic oil and vinegar salad dressing from basic to to inspiring! Drizzle it over steamed veggies or any combination of salad you like!  



1 shallot, peeled and roughly chopped

¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup champagne vinegar

4 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon

1 ½ teaspoons agave or honey

2 teaspoons Dijon or brown deli mustard

¾ teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper to taste


1.     Combine shallot, oil, vinegar, agave (or honey), tarragon, mustard, salt and pepper in a blender, mini prep or jar with an immersion blender. Puree until smooth.

2.     Serve immediately or store refrigerated in a jar up to 1 week. 


If you do not have fresh tarragon, use 2 teaspoons dried instead. 

If refrigerated dressing becomes solid, set jar in a bowl of warm water for several minutes to melt it. Shake well before serving.
