Sweet Paprika Vinaigrette

04 Apr

Getting tired of the same ol’ balsamic vinaigrette or oil and vinegar dressings? Yes, they are delicious and it’s great that we made them ourselves instead of buying dressing from the grocery store, but if you are anything like me, you need a little more variety in the salad dressing department! Here is a fantastic dressing recipe that is great for summer salads. Use in salads with fruit ( watermelon would go great with this dressing) nuts, maybe even goat cheese. Also, ( I haven’t done this yet)  I bet this would be a great marinade for grilled chicken as well.


  • 1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of stone ground mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 tsp of pepper
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp of onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp of sage
  • 1/3 cup of extra light olive oil


  • Simple! Mix all ingredients in a small Tupperware container or jar with lid. Shake well and taste. This should yield around 1 cup of dressing. Cover what you don’t use and refrigerate the rest for later! ( Keeps fresh up to 1 week)
