Shallot Lemon Vinaigrette

This dressing is to die for.  Its good on anything.  Salad, a dressing for fish or chicken, poured over rice, you name it.

Most vinaigrettes call for a 3 to 1 ratio of oil to acid.  I like to be able able to really taste the acid, in this case lemon juice, in my vinaigrette so I use a 3 to 2 ratio or even a 1 to 1 ratio like I did in this vinaigrette.


I also love that I finally got to use my new nifty dressing bottle!  Isn’t it pretty?
