I love made-from-scratch salad dressing.

No preservatives or fillers here. Using simple on-hand ingredients you can make an array of vinaigrettes and dressing that will blow your mind.

This is one of my favorite go-to vinaigrettes. I decided to put it on the blog after I served it to some friends and they asked to take the rest of the jar home after dinner.


I figure if we can’t get enough of it, and they can’t get enough of it, you might like it as well!

Simply pour all the ingredients in a mason jar and shake until smooth and creamy.

    This sounds like the perfect summer salad dressing! I’m imagining this on a salad of lettuce and spinach, heirloom tomatoes, sliced onions, and dried cranberries…yum! Perfection. Pinned!

    Some of my favorite flavors! This would be perfect on almost any salad!

    This looks good. I am not a lime or lemon fan. Anything you could suggest I could use? Or maybe not add it at all?

      Orange would probably work!

    • Sommerposted March 11, 2014 at 11:26 pm Reply

      You could substitute orange like Sarah mentioned, you use your favorite vinegar!

    This sounds delicious, I’m wondering, can it be made to keep in the fridge? How long do you think it will stay good?

    • Sommerposted March 11, 2014 at 11:29 pm Reply

      Hi Renee, I’ve kept it in the fridge for 2 weeks before. Usually ours doesn’t last longer than that!

        I was JUST about to ask this question. Thanks for answering, Sommer :)

    I’m not sure I’ve tried anything quite like this…can’t wait to make it!

    I was surprised to see cream used here, I was expecting mayo. How do you think that may work instead? Can’t get me head around the addition of cream

    • Anne M Hughesposted August 11, 2014 at 5:55 pm Reply

      I was wondering something similar… only I’d like to omit the cream altogether! Should any adjustments be made to compensate?

    • Bay Girlposted July 7, 2017 at 9:43 am Reply

      Instead of cream, you can use yogurt, the thicker the better. Try spooning some yogurt into a coffee filter, let rest overnight, and in the morning its very thick (spreadable). Keep refrigerated.

    Just found this website and have found 3 recipes I will be making the next couple of weeks – just curious if you’ve made this with lemon instead of lime? I don’t have any limes on hand and want to make this now!

    • Sommerposted March 25, 2014 at 9:01 pm Reply

      Hey Kathy, Of course! You I’d use a little less lemon than lime though…

    No vinegar in the vinagrette?

  21. Melissaposted December 30, 2015 at 12:12 am Reply

    Found the salad on pinterest and it looks amazing!! I was wondering what I could substitute for the cream since I have dairy and nut allergies maybe coconut milk or some vegan mayo?
