Someone recently asked me what my current obsession is in the kitchen.  My answer was “to make my own salsa and dressing”!  For years, I bought jarred salsa and salad dressing not knowing that I could actually make it myself.  Every time I would buy a new jar, I was always excited to try it, but shocked by all the ingredients that are used in the product.  Some of the ingredients I can’t even understand, most of which are added as a preservative.  Now that I understand food a bit more, I just make my own salsa and salad dressing.  Fresh ingredients and without preservatives!

 

Don’t get me wrong, if I find a jarred salad dressing that is 100% natural, without any preservatives, I’ll definitely buy it to try!  But sometimes I want a salad and don’t have any pre-made dressing in my refrigerator.  That’s when I turn to my 5 Minute Honey Dijon Vinaigrette.  All you need are 7 ingredients, most of which you already have, and a jar with a lid!

 

The title of this recipe says it all… it takes 5 minutes!  In just 5 minutes, you can make delicious, fresh, preservative free salad dressing!!  To start, mince shallot and add to a jar that has a lid.

   

 

 

Add extra virgin olive oil.

 

 

Add red wine vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.

 

 

Put the lid on the jar and shake it up until all the ingredients are mixed!

 

 

5 Minute Honey Dijon Vinaigrette is fresh and super easy to make.  Minced shallot, olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, and Dijon mustard mixed in a jar is the perfect addiction to any salad.  This dressing with stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  When you are ready to use the dressing, just make sure to shake up the jar again to mix all of the ingredients.  3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints per serving!
