Fresh Herb Vinaigrette

After the delightful dinner we had from Alinea last weekend, I’ve been eager to try a fresh herb vinaigrette made from herbs from my herbs garden, aka “walk up salad bar”. So I did it!

This is the framework for the recipe, I think it can be tweaked and adjusted to fit most anything. I liked the little bit of heat from the cayenne pepper and lemon have it a freshness.

  • 1/4 yellow onion
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Large handful of fresh herbs (I used parsley, basil, oregano, chives, thyme and mint)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Place everything in a blender and process until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. Toss over tomatoes and cucumbers, or your favorite greens for a taste of summer!
