Lemon ViniagretteLemon Vinaigrette Recipe

This is one of my favorite salad dressing! I'm always making this Lemon Vinaigrette for salads because it is so easy to make and so good! Can also be served over cooked asparagus, broccoli, and fresh tomato slices. Be creative and enjoy!

Recipe Type: Salad and Salad Dressing, Condiments, Lemons
Yields: 1/4 cup
Prep time: 20 min


1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (can use hazelnut or walnut oil)
2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice*
1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
3/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped**
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
Pinch coarsely-ground black pepper


* To make this Lemon Vinaigrette properly, you must use fresh-squeezed lemon juice and not bottled lemon juice.

** Sometimes, I just omit the thyme leaves. Depends on my mood! You could use other herbs of your choice, if desired.


In a jar or bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.

Serve at room temperature. Shake or stir just before serving.

Yields 1/4 cup Lemon Vinaigrette.
