The vinaigrette has been transferred to a glass cruet.

So, yesterday I shared our lemon couscous salad recipe; however, I didn’t share the vinaigrette we used on the dish. Today, I’m correcting that little issue. I present to you, our lemon basil vinaigrette.

It’s a tangy, flavor-filled salad dressing that works on just about any salad. The lemon add a fresh burst of citrus flavor to every bite.

Also, keep in mind that is can be used on greens, pasta salads, and as a marinade for chicken and pork. Oh, if you’re looking for a creamier salad dressing, then take a look at our ranch dressing no mayo recipe.

Storage:

Room Temperature: Store leftover vinaigrette at room temperature in a sealed container for 4-5 days.
