Cook Time

2 Min




  • ¼ cup Lemon juice (fresh preferred)

  • ½ cup Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • ½ tsp Salt

  • ¼ tsp Pepper


  • Mason Jar

  • Juicer

  • Knife


  1. Assemble all of the ingredients in a mason jar (or a jar with a lid.)

  2. After the ingredients are in the jar, top with the lid, making sure it’s closed tightly.

  3. Now shake! Do this for about 15-20 seconds until the ingredients come together. This is called emulsion! (One clue that this is happened is that the vinaigrette will have turned a light yellow color.)

  4. Pour your vinaigrette over salad, use it as a dip for vegetables or as a marinade for roasted vegetables and meats! Ask the adults in your home to experiment with you.

  5. You did it!
