What’s the secret to the world’s easiest vinaigrette dressing? Hint: Shake things up.
Why This Recipe Works
For a simple vinaigrette, we wanted to skip the step of slowly whisking in oil to make an emulsification. A lidded jar lets us shake all the ingredients until blended, and mayonnaise and honey provide emulsifying power to keep the dressing smooth. Soaking shallots in an acidic ingredient for a few minutes tames their oniony bite. A few fresh add-ins, along with good old salt and pepper, and this vinaigrette is easy, tasty, and versatile.
