21 Day Fix Dijon Vinaigrette

While I have always loved homemade dressings, I never did bother too often because the pre-packaged ones were really convenient when I was in a rush (I’m looking at you, Italian).

Now, I no longer have that excuse!

This recipe comes from the 21 Day Fix eating plan and guidebook. There are not too many recipes in there, but this is one of them, and it’s my favorite. I serve this dijon vinaigrette over salads and steamed vegetables, plus it’s a really good marinade as well.

In a nutshell, the 21 Day Fix helps you get into the habit of eating well and working out (it takes 21 days to make or break a habit). The whole point is to eat REAL food and eliminate the processed stuff from your diet.

How to make 21 day fix dijon vinaigrette

It doesn’t get much easier than this dijon vinaigrette! You are only a few simple steps away from this tasty, tantalizing goodness!

Combine all ingredients – Add all of the ingredients to either a large mixing bowl or a Mason jar with a lid.

Whisk or Shake – Thoroughly blend everything together by whisking what is in the bowl, or by placing a lid on the jar and shaking vigorously.

Chill and Serve – Store the dressing, covered, in the fridge for up to a week. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes prior to serving, shake well to mix, and enjoy!

Key ingredients and substitutions for dijon dressing

This easy dijon vinaigrette recipe is made with simple ingredients. Olive oil and vinegar team up with lemon juice, dijon mustard, and a few spices to create this divinely delicious dressing.

While it is all pretty straightforward, here are a few ingredients you can substitute while still keeping it in the realm of approved 21 day fix dressings.

  • Vinegar – The recipe calls for red wine vinegar, but feel free to sub in balsamic, apple cider, or any of your favorite vinegars.
  • Oil – A high quality olive oil is ideal, but another healthy oil (like avocado) can pass the test if you need a sub.
  • Mustard – Go with classic dijon mustard or substitute a spicy brown, stone ground, spicy, or horseradish mustard.
  • Lemon Juice – Fresh lemon juice is best, but go ahead and use the bottled stuff if that’s what you have on hand.
  • Spices – I’ve included a simple blend of garlic, salt, and pepper, but the sky is the limit when it comes to spices. Add in a bit of turmeric, cayenne, dill… whatever flavor floats your boat!

  1. Sounds delicious! And looks easy too. I like that you can make it ahead of time and keep it handy.

  2. First of all that vingerette looks delicious! I love that you can use it multiple ways! I don’t know if I buy that 21 days to break a habit. I have committed myself to things like no coffee for 40 days for lent, worked out for 3 months straight, but I always go back to my bad habits. Maybe its just me. lol!!

    • I think it`s when we`re familiar with something it`s difficult to break that habit. For me, when it came to working out and I had rest days over the weekend, I would have a hard time getting back into it. Since doing a little something everyday (even if it`s just a stretch or a walk) I keep at it. I`ll see if this momentum continues πŸ™‚

  3. oh I love that we always have the ingredients for this on hand. off to pin!

  4. This looks so good! Yummy on salad and as a marinade

  5. Mmmm, this one sounds really yummy and there are so many ways to use it. thanks for the great recipe!! I love how easy it is to prepare πŸ™‚

    i have added more punch to this recipe. Out of those 6 TBsp of Olive Oil, I have added 1 Tbsp of Avocado Oil and 1 Tbsp of 2 week aged Olive Oil With Parsley.

    On top I have added sea salt with Kale.

  9. Do you have any preferences when it comes to what Dijon Mustard you grab? Whole grain, fine ground, brands? Thank you for sharing this recipe! It looks delicious.

  10. How long should this keep in the fridge?

  11. 5 stars
    Thank you for posting this. It is one of my favorite vinaigrette recipes and I had lost it when we remodeled our kitchen. I am so glad to have it again. I am going to make it right now.
