Simple Vinaigrette Dressing

I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked the recipe for my vinaigrette dressing. It’s my go-to dressing for any and all salads. I can make it instantly or make it in advance, it’s quick, and it’s easy.  And it’s always delicious.  It is the easiest dressing to make and only requires 4 ingredients – vinegar, olive oil, salt, & pepper. The only other ingredient I use in this vinaigrette is honey to make my honey vinaigrette dressing for a sweeter version.

Here is the recipe for My Simple Vinaigrette.  


  • 6 tbsp Vinegar (you can use balsamic, peach vinegar, apple vinegar or any vinegar of your choice). My favorite is balsamic vinegar if I want a thick dense dressing, or white wine vinegar if I want a lighter dressing.
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • In a small bowl splash 6 tbsp vinegar.
  • Add salt and pepper and mix in.
  • Add olive oil and whisk into the vinegar until fully incorporated.
  • Taste to adjust for salt and add more vinegar for more sourness if needed.
  • Ready to serve on salad.
