White Wine Vinaigrette

White Wine Vinaigrette is the best go-to salad dressing! Made with pantry staples like white wine vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, oregano, and a touch of salt and pepper, it easily pairs with any type of salad you can toss together. Great as a marinade as well, this dressing is so versatile and light – and comes together in under 5 minutes!

Love vinaigrettes as much as we do? Try some of our other flavors like our Red Wine Vinaigrette with Dijon Mustard, Lemon Basil Vinaigrette Recipe, or Lemon Honey Vinaigrette Dressing for all your spring and summer salads!

White Wine Vinaigrette

We love a good homemade salad dressing here at More than Meat and Potatoes. Especially flavored vinaigrettes! Today we’re bringing you a classic: White Wine Vinaigrette.

This dressing is neutral enough in flavor it can pair with fruit salads, mixed greens, tomato salads, orzo, quinoa, or use it as a marinade on chicken, fish, or veggies. It’s made with ingredients you’re sure to have already on hand and comes together in just a few minutes.

Throw everything into the jar and shake. That’s it! It can easily be customized to your preference, any and all of the ingredients can be adjusted for flavor. Add more white wine vinegar to make it more tangy, or use honey to make a sweeter version (this addition is great for fruit based salads).

While it’s a family favorite for salads of any kind, we love to use it to marinate chicken and fish as well. It adds just enough flavor and makes the meat juicy without being overwhelming. It can even be used to add flavor to your favorite veggies!

How To Make White Wine Vinaigrette

  1. In a bowl or large jar with a lid, add the olive oil, white wine vinegar, dried oregano, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Whisk or shake thoroughly to combine.
  2. Store at room temperature for up to a week and use on salads or as a marinade for your favorite chicken or fish dishes! Enjoy.

Tips and Variations

  • Adjust the white wine vinegar to your taste. 
  • For a sweet variation add a touch of honey or maple syrup!
  • It may go without saying but make sure to use white wine vinegar as opposed to white vinegar. They have very different tastes and if you use white vinegar you will end up with a much more acidic and sour dressing. We don’t recommend it. 
  • You could swap the dijon mustard for a horseradish mustard for some spice or substitute with a stone ground mustard. Of course you could leave it out altogether as well. 
  • You can always change up the flavors of this more neutral dressing by adding some lemon juice, fresh herbs, or even chili flakes.
