 Lemon Dijon Homemade Salad Dressing #lowfodmap #fodyfoods #glutenfree #dairyfree

I love homemade salad dressing, and rarely buy the bottled stuff.

Many nights, I just toss a little red wine vinegar or lemon juice (lately I’ve been LOVING lemon), spritz a little extra virgin olive oil with my misto oil mister, sprinkle a little salt and pepper, maybe add a few dashes of dijon, and call that my salad dressing for whatever vegetables I happen to have that week.

A few weeks ago, Brian’s family and I enjoyed an in-home French cooking class from a woman who lives in our neighborhood. The class was so fun and delicious, and if you live in the area I will absolutely share her information with you!  At the very end of the cooking lesson we made a simple salad dressing.

It was very much the same as what I typically put on my salad, but mixing it all together in a bowl in the right proportions with shallots for that oniony/garlic flavor made all the difference. Of course in the class, this was simply a recipe we tossed together by taste so I wasn’t quite sure of the exact measurements, but after testing it out a few times I nailed the ingredient amounts down so I could share the recipe for Lemon Dijon Homemade Salad Dressing with all of you!

I received samples of FODY Foods products, but was not compensated for my time. 

Lemon Dijon Homemade Salad Dressing Ingredients and Method

The ingredients are simple:

The method for Lemon Dijon Homemade Salad Dressing is simple too!

Simply combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and whisk with a fork to combine. The trick is allowing this dressing to sit for a little bit while the rest of your meal is coming together. I find this really helps the flavors meld and makes the dressing taste even more vibrant.

This Lemon Dijon Homemade Salad Dressing would taste fantastic the way the French enjoy their salads (greens only!) and with a loaded bowl of toppings if that is more your style (today I enjoyed this dressing on a bed of romaine with cucumber, bell pepper, tempeh, and lentils…so tasty).

Lemon Dijon Homemade Salad Dressing Tips

I know I already said this, but the method for this dressing (and most homemade salad dressing) is really simple! I find it makes about 2-4 servings (total of 1/4 cup) depending on how much dressing you love on your salad. The dressing would also taste wonderful as a marinade or sauce for any kind of protein (I’m thinking salmon, shrimp, or tempeh would taste great!).

I love using the FODY Foods Garlic-Infused Olive Oil, but you can definitely use a traditional extra virgin olive oil and still have a really tasty dressing.

If you are following a low FODMAP elimination diet or modified diet, make sure to read the ingredient label on your dijon mustard. Choose one that has all ingredients listed (if it just says “spices” it may contain a potential irritant), and does not contain anything triggering (they may contain garlic or onion).

I hope you love this recipe! If you try it, make sure to let me know in the comments section or on instagram 🙂
