Basic Vinaigrette Recipe

This simple oil & vinegar salad dressing, which is also called a basic vinaigrette or basic French dressing, can be mixed up in a flash. It uses the standard 3:1 vinaigrette ratio, meaning 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
  • ¾ cup salad oil (see note)
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and ground white pepper (or freshly ground black pepper), to taste
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix for about 10 seconds or until fully combined.
  2. Transfer to a glass bowl and let stand for 30 minutes to let the flavors meld. Give the dressing a good whisk immediately before serving.
Makes 1 cup of dressing.

NOTE: Any oil labeled "vegetable oil" or "salad oil" is fine for this basic recipe. You can also use any light, neutral-flavored oil like safflower, canola or soybean oil.
