This tasty red wine vinegar dressing is delicious drizzled over a bed of greens or tossed with your favorite vegetables! This simple vinaigrette comes together in just a few minutes!


  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise (optional, see note)


  1. Combine the vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the vinegar mixture, whisking constantly to incorporate.
  3. If not serving immediately, use mayonnaise to avoid separation.


The oil and vinegar will separate after a few minutes. This isn’t an issue if you’re serving the salad immediately, but if you’d like to make this dressing in advance, simply add 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise. This will stabilize the dressing and prevent it from separating.
