This Honey Shallot Vinaigrette recipe is super easy to do and will make any salad you dress it on, especially steak salad, into a flavor bomb! Time to put down the bottled stuff, the freshness of this vinaigrette deserves its chance to shine on your greens!



For The dressing

  • 1 Large shallot
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 cup honey (or to taste)


Blend together red wine vinegar, shallots, honey, and olive oil in a blender or Nutribullet.


If you want to do a more traditional vinaigrette, mince the shallots very fine with a knife and use a whisk to blend together the honey, shallots, and red wine vinegar. Then, while whisking, add a drizzle of oil in a thin stream to incorporate into the mixture. (but seriously, use the blender)

For a spicy kick, add red pepper flakes or, if going in an asian direction use gojuchang!
