golden color vinaigrette in a clear mason jar next to a green salad in a bowl

Better than Sex Vinaigrette


The name says it all. I promise after trying this recipe you'll never buy a store-bought vinaigrette again.

This sweet, zesty and light vinaigrette so simple to make.
Literally pour six ingredients into a jar and shake. The mustard emulsifies with the olive oil, giving it a slight creamy texture that's delicious over greens and roasted vegetables. Volia’!


Know what’s in your food! Trust me I know how convenient it is to buy store-bought salad dressings, but many well known dressing have additives and junk in them. For example Wish-Bone brand contains soybean oil, corn syrup, sugar, maltodextrin, sorbic acid and the list goes on.Even the cute “healthy” brands have questionable ingredients listed on the bottle, so be on the look out.
