  • cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 garlic cloves minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.


  • This lemon vinaigrette will last for up to one week in the fridge in a sealed container (though it may lose some of it's bright flavor over time). Here are some of my favorite storage containers.
  • Watch me make this lemon vinaigrette as part of my Meal Prep for Spring recipe video.
  • If you do prefer a creamier dressing, give my lemon tahini dressing a try. And if you'd like to make this dressing Whole30 compliant, just omit the honey.
