The world of homemade salad dressings is not a place I often find myself. Since I am all about ease and convenience when cooking in the kitchen, I usually choose one of my favorite bottled dressings. However, having a few homemade salad dressing recipes up your sleeve never hurts! Especially since most recipes contain ingredients that are regularly found in your kitchen. My recipe for a Dijon Vinaigrette with Fresh Parsley is no exception!

My Dijon Vinaigrette with Fresh Parsley salad dressing will go well with just about any mixed greens salad. I do not prefer a strong vinegar flavor in vinaigrettes so that is why I have gone light on the white balsamic vinegar (only 2 tablespoons). That is also the reason I chose white balsamic vinegar. White balsamic vinegar has a light, fruity flavor. In comparison, other balsamic vinegars can have a stronger acidic flavor. I incorporate fresh herbs whenever possible so the addition of fresh parsley seemed like a natural choice.

Now that spring has sprung in NNY I definitely plan on making more salads for lunch and dinner! Our life becomes extra busy in the spring because we own a seasonal business that opens back up for the year in April. Having simple salad and salad dressing ideas up my sleeve helps me so much during a time of year when I have less free time.

Serve this vinaigrette over my Asparagus Salad with Fried Goat Cheese!

How to make my Dijon Vinaigrette with Fresh Parsley:

Dijon vinaigrette with fresh parsley instructions.
Kitchen tools needed:
  • Mixing bowl – This is what I use at home. It is nice and deep so liquid ingredients do not splash out when I am mixing them. I also always choose stainless steel over plastic whenever possible!
  • Whisk – If you don’t own a whisk or two, make sure to add this one to your next Amazon order!

That’s it! You don’t need a large blender, immersion blender or a food processor! This is a super simple recipe!

How long does the vinaigrette last?
