Easy Herb Vinaigrette – Recipe

Basil plantI love gardening, and especially growing my own herbs to have on hand to use in my recipes.

One of the herbs I enjoy in my dishes, is fresh Basil.

Someone shared this recipe for a homemade vinaigrette, so I am sharing it here with you.

Fresh, homemade salad dressing is not only convenient, but also very refreshing.

This recipe yields: 1 2/3 cups of dressing.

Easy Herb Vinaigrette – Recipe

Easy Herb Vinaigrette – Recipe


  • 9 Tbs white wine vinegar (plain or any other vinegar you have)
  • 1 1/2 Tbs honey
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt (or regular salt)
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or Canola oil
  • 3 Tbs chopped fresh Basil
  • 3 Tbs minced fresh Chives


  1. Combine vinegar, honey and salt.
  2. Whisk in the oil, until combined.
  3. Stir in Basil and Chives.
  4. Cover, and store in a refrigerator up to five days.


In case you do not have fresh Basil or Chives, you still can make a simple salad dressing by mixing some Extra Virgin Olive oil with vinegar, and adding some salt, pepper to taste, plus some dried Italian herbs, such as Oregano and Basil.
