Red Wine Vinaigrette from Salted (Make Ahead and Use for Weeks!)

Red Wine Vinaigrette - make ahead and use for weeks!Salted is like the Netflix of cooking school, and I was pumped when they reached out to me about working together. I love cooking but have no formal training and have always wanted to take a few classes to help me eliminate some of the ridiculous trial and error that comes along with every dish I make. For me, being in the kitchen is so much more enjoyable when I know enough about what I’m making to confidently improvise and adjust, not following a recipe perfectly.

One area I really want to master is sauces, dressings and marinades because they’re so versatile and can take a boring plate of veggies (or anything, really) to the next level. Plus, you can prep a big batch at the start of the week and then have it on hand to use for days or even weeks. Today, I wanted to share a red wine vinaigrette recipe I got from Salted that I love. It’s so easy to make and I’ve been using it on salads, to marinate fish, and to dress veggie stir-fries. Red Wine Vinaigrette - make ahead and use for weeks!

  2. Squeeze the juice from half a lemon into the jar.
  3. Add the vinegar and oil to the jar.
  4. Add a large pinch of both salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Shake vigorously to combine all the ingredients. The vinaigrette can be used immediately, but for the best flavor, allow it to sit overnight.

But Salted is far more than just recipes (although there are a ton on there). It also has videos on skills and lessons—everything from an introduction to gluten-free flours to house to char-grill vegetables. It’s an online cooking school with 100+ top chefs contributing lessons and recipe demonstrations. SaltedTV

One trick I picked up from Salted is to squeeze a lemon with it facing your hand so that you catch the seeds. Game changer! I used to always first squeeze the lemon into a separate bowl, pick out the seeds, then transfer to the bowl with other ingredients. Red Wine Vinaigrette - make ahead and use for weeks!

So let’s talk details. Salted is $9.99/month or $99/year and members get access to exclusive classes, tutorials, and a VIP chef hotline that provides answers to any culinary questions you might have in under 30 minutes. If the price sounds like a lot, just think that cooking classes will usually run you about $100 and I don’t even know what actual culinary school would cost—$50k total? Nonetheless, I’m here to save the day and give you a break on the price …
