A perfect impromptu meal: Grilled Chicken with an arugula salad. The Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette perfectly pulls it all together.

Seriously, why does anyone buy salad dressing from the store? One of the most simple and satisfying dinners, made on a whim.


Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

From Barefoot Contessa


  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 11/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup good olive oil

Place the mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
