When it comes to a versatile salad dressing that can be used on a wide array of salads, this champagne vinaigrette can’t be beat.

It pairs just as beautifully with peppery arugula as it does mild baby spinach. And I drizzle it on my Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Arugula Salad – a delicious recipe I highly recommend making.

I also love this champagne vinaigrette with spring and summer vegetables, like asparagus, fennel and avocado.  And it’s equally delicious as a marinade on white fish and salmon.

What are the Ingredients in Champagne Vinaigrette?

Champagne vinaigrette is made from olive oil, champagne vinegar, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, shallot, honey, salt and pepper. Then, it’s a simple as whisking everything together.

Once you’ve made the dressing you can store it in the fridge for up to a week. The container you see pictured is a Weck jar and I’ve chatted before about my favorite glass storage containers.
