Pickled Beet Vinaigrette

Pickled beet vinaigerette salad Pickled beet vinaigerette salad I love vinaigrettes. They are tasty and super easy to make. And if you have oil and vinegar handy, you pretty much have all the ingredients you need. Lately I've been obsessed with pickled beets, so I thought I'd share a favorite vinaigrette I've been making lately.

My favorite pickled beetsThese are my favorite pickled beets. They're called "Million Dollar Pickled Beets." They taste amazing, and I love that the ingredient list is only four items (beets, vinegar, sugar, and salt). You can use any pickled beets you prefer for this though.

Pickled Beet Vinaigrette, makes about one cup.

1/4 cup pickled beet juice (which is mostly vinegar)
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard (optional)
1/2 cup olive oil
salt + pepper to taste

Easy salad dressing recipesCombine the first three ingredients in a bowl. Next, you will whisk in the oil. Do this slowly so the oil and vinegar will combine (rather than stay separate). I like to use a squirt bottle to slowly drizzle the oil in as I whisk. Taste and add as much salt and pepper as you think it needs.

How to make vinairgeretteSee how well-combined the mixture is? That's what you're looking for here.

Also, I have a confession to make…

Moody vinaigerette photo (aka ART)Sometimes I daydream about creating some kind of installation art show that's all food photos. This is either the best or worst idea I've had this week. Can't decide.

I call this one, "Beet Vinaigrette (Art)"

I put the word "art" in parenthesis so everyone knows. They might just think it's a regular food photo otherwise.

Jk. 🙂

Pickled beet vinaigerette saladAnyway, back to salad talk. You can serve this vinaigrette on any salad you like, but I am currently in love with spinach, pickled beets, feta cheese, and sunflower seeds. I really like feta and beets together, the sharpness of the feta pairs well with earthy, sweet pickled beets. Eat your greens so you can have a holiday cookie later—that's my motto! xo. Emma
