This vinaigrette is pretty zingy - the fresh garlic is spicy and the lemon is tart. Make a salad of delicate lettuces with orange and grapefruit segments, or try it on fresh tomato and avocado chunks.

Ina Garten's Favorite Vinaigrette Recipe

As any home cook knows, the easiest way to bungle an otherwise tasty salad is to ladle on a bland, too-oily, overpowering, or otherwise flavor-sapping vinaigrette.

Thankfully, Ina Garten has the perfect recipe to make any salad wow all those who gather around the table: Her four-ingredient lemon vinaigrette. Recently, the Barefoot Contessa was kind enough to demo the easy salad dressing on instagram and we can&apost wait to add it to our own kitchen repertoire.

"People think vinaigrettes are really hard to make and it&aposs so easy. My favorite vinaigrette is lemon vinaigrette and it&aposs four ingredients," Garten begins before walking us through the process. In the caption section of her post, she breaks down the simple recipe for her fans: "Combine 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 cup good olive oil, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper in a small glass measuring cup and whisk until combined." Our takeaway? This vinaigrette is such a cinch to pull together and it sure beats store-bought, too.

In the video, Garten also shares that if she&aposs making a salad in advance, she pours the dressing straight into a big salad bowl, adds her salad greens and then right before serving she mixes it all together (if you dress prematurely, your lettuce will become soggy).

How to Make

Much like when making any other homemade salad dressings, you&rsquoll want to blend all of your ingredients until smooth and well combined. Here are my recommendations from best to worst options:

  • Blender &ndash My favorite way is in our NutriBullet. It&rsquos small, easy to clean, and emulsifies the dressings nicely. You can also use a Vitamix.
  • Food processor &ndash A mini-prep food processor works great when blending fresh herbs or larger ingredients.
  • Jar with a Lid &ndash While simply shaking your ingredients together in a jar will not completely emulsify your salad dressing, it does get the job done and eliminates something additional to clean.
  • Bowl with a Whisk &ndash This would be the last resort. It takes additional time and the mixture will separate unless whisked constantly for a few minutes.

Pro Tip: Finely chop the fresh herbs before blending or whisking into the salad dressing. Even a blender or a food processor don&rsquot always do the best job at chopping the herbs into small pieces.
