Dijon Vinaigrette Recipe

Dijon Vinaigrette Recipe | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

Making my own salad dressing is one of those things that I always think takes more time than it actually does. This Dijon vinaigrette recipe is quick and easy because it uses only six ingredients, including salt and pepper, and you could even leave those out, along with the honey if you wanted to.

Of course, you can always just splash a little oil and vinegar on your salad, and I often do, but the few extra ingredients in this recipe take it up a notch. I also like having the oil and vinegar blended together, which is easy to do. You don’t need any fancy equipment, just a whisk.

Dijon Vinaigrette
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, honey, salt, and pepper.
  2. Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the bowl while whisking briskly. Continue until all the olive oil has been added.
  3. Serve over salad.

    Is Grey Poupon Dijon gluten free? I haven’t found a dijon that is. Wonder if this would be good with spicey brown mustard by French’s which is certified gf

      I’m pretty sure it is gluten free, but I don’t have the ingredients to look at and can’t find them online. I think the spicy brown mustard would work well.
