A quick and easy lemon vinaigrette salad dressing made from freshly squeezed lemon, white wine vinegar, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil.


Units Scale
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Peel and finely mince the garlic clove. Add the minced garlic to the mason jar.
  2. Use a citrus squeezer to juice the lemon, and add the lemon juice to a mason jar.
  3. Add the white wine vinegar, salt, pepper, and olive oil to the jar. Then, tightly close the lid. Shake the jar until an emulsified dressing forms. 
  4. If you don’t have a mason jar handy, add the lemon juice, vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to a small mixing bowl. Then, slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking it constantly.

Serve immediately.


If the dressing separates before serving, shake the jar to re-emulsify.
