dijon-tarragon salad dressing recipe

Dijon-Tarragon Salad Dressing

A light, very spicy dressing that adds zip to your salads or vegetable dishes.
Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 6 servings


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon


  • Squeeze the lemon and pour the juice into the Mason jar. (I use an old fashioned glass juicer but the picture in the article before the recipe shows you a modern one.)
  • Pour the olive oil and vinegar into the jar with the lemon juice. Cover and give the jar a shake.
  • Add tarragon, garlic powder, and a dash of ground pepper if you wish. Shake, and serve.
  • Store in the fridge. Allow it to sit at room temperature for half an hour to soften the olive oil which will turn solid in the fridge.
