Champagne Vinaigrette, low-fat, low-calorie and just plain delish! Easy to prepare and ready in about 5 minutes! Homemade salad dressings use real ingredients, no preservatives and takes minutes to prepare! Perfect on salads, quinoa, and roasted veggies!
I cannot stress how easy it is to make homemade vinaigrette at home.
As a food blogger you would think I have it all planned, well that is so not true! I do cook a lot! Sometimes it's the 8th time I have made Grilled Mexican Pork Chops because I want to ensure the recipe works, lol. But there are many days scramble to make dinner. Having easy recipes made ahead can really help get a meal on the table.
One of my go-to always in the fridge recipe is my Champagne Vinaigrette!
Champagne Vinaigrette is super yum on salads, grains, veggies. You can use it as a marinade for veggies, chicken, pork, and beef. The salad dressing is perfect for this Kale and Quinoa Salad with Pomegranates!Truly one of the best combos around.
We make this vinaigrette a lot and keep it in the fridge for our salads and an easy marinade for chicken and beef too.
The benefits of a homemade salad dressing:
- Controlling the ingredients allows you to lower fat and calories.
- Buying vinegars and oil in bulk at food warehouse stores is very cost effective.

- Feel free to add in extra ingredients to any homemade vinaigrette. ie: tahini, chia seeds, flax turmeric.

How to Make Homemade Champagne Vinaigrette:
- Use a blender to blend ingredients because it gives the salad dressing a light, fluffy, creamy consistency! Yet I am not using any cream!
- Avocado oil is my favorite for this dressing! It has more antioxidants than olive oil and more Vitamin E. Great on salads.
- Use agave as a sweetener. If not vegan, use honey if agave is not available.
- This is an easy salad dressing. All ingredients go into blender. Blend well. Refrigerate till ready to eat.
- Store in the fridge for about 5-6 days if it lasts that long.
