Looking for a perfectly creamy vinaigrette that goes with just about anything? Your search ends here with this Creamy Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing!

We’re big fans of eating our green her at NS, and big salads are a daily meal staple. As you can imagine, we go through ALOT of salad dressing. Nothing against store-bought salad dressings, we finally had enough with the extra cost and plastic bottles. With this in mind, we set out to make a salad dressing at home to help kick the store-bought dressing habit, and we haven’t looked back.

We quickly fell in love with this recipe, and Creamy Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing has become our new favorite go-to condiment to keep on hand. The fresh ingredients create complexity and flavor that store-bought dressings just can’t match.

Healthy Hack

We love pairing this Creamy Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing with peppery arugula, dark kale, or romaine. This salad dressing can also be used as a dipping sauce for roasted veggies, raw veggies, tossed on quinoa or rice, used as a marinade, tossed on tofu or tempeh, or drizzled over other proteins.
