I have a secret to tell you: I can’t keep a secret! My new cookbook, Earthy & Elegant: French Omelettes will be released on October 16th and I just couldn’t wait to share one of the recipes with you! The book is full of chic, easy recipes for classic French omelettes and components to serve alongside them. My Everyday Lemon Vinaigrette is a dressing that adds a bright touch of lemon to awaken even the simplest bowl of greens. This is by far my favorite lemon vinaigrette and one that I always have in the refrigerator. The flavors are both sharp from the lemon but with just a hint of sweetness from the honey. The best part? It can be prepared up to 3 days in advance and stored in the same jar in which it was made! One less thing to do when preparing for a dinner party. Click here to order my new book so you can make your own bistro-worthy French omelettes for family and friends!
Ingredients (makes 2/3 cup )
Lemon Zest – 2 teaspoons
Lemon Juice – ½ cup, freshly squeezed
Honey – 4 teaspoons
Dijon Mustard – 1 ½ teaspoons
Olive Oil – ½ cup
Sea Salt – 1 teaspoon
Black Pepper – 1 teaspoon, freshly cracked
Place all of the ingredients into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously for about 60 seconds until the vinaigrette is well-blended. Set aside.
Entertaining Tip: I like to serve the extra lemon vinaigrette on the side in the same jar with a little spoon and allow guests to add more if they like. Or, for a fancier effect, serve it in a small pitcher or even a silver creamer (dust off that old tea set)!
