I usually gravitate towards creamy dressings like my Vegan Honey Mustard or Golden Tahini Sauce, but this tangy vinaigrette has become my go-to recently! 

It’s made from just a few simple ingredients including olive oil, champagne vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup and dried Italian herbs. It’s fresh and zesty and instantly livens up everything some a simple salad to a hearty sub sandwich!

….Side note: I grew up calling these “subs” but a lot of people say “grinder” or “hoagie.” What do you can sandwiches like this? 

Either way, this vinaigrette dressing is great on a sandwich. It makes even a simple homemade sub taste like you picked it up at the best deli in town. Hope you enjoy!

Champagne Vinaigrette Ingredients

There’s just 6 ingredients in this homemade salad dressing:

  • Olive Oil – extra virgin is key here! Using a good quality olive oil makes a surprisingly big difference in the overall dressing.
  • Champagne Vinegar – a GREAT vinegar for dressings because it’s zippy and tart without being too intensely sour. I love its delicate, fresh flavor.
  • Dijon Mustard – a little goes a long way here and it doesn’t make the dressing taste like mustard. It’s there for depth of flavor and to emulsify the dressing into the perfect consistency.
  • Maple Syrup – a dash of maple helps to balance the vinegar without making this dressing taste sweet.
  • Dried Italian Herbs – a store-bought blend of dried herbs and garlic adds instant flavor!
  • Salt and Black Pepper – ties everything together and brings this vinaigrette to life.

Tips for Homemade Salad Dressing:

I call this my One Minute Vinaigrette because that’s all the time it takes to make your own salad dressing at home!

  • Good quality olive oil goes a long way! Opt for extra virgin for best results.
  • Same goes for vinegar – champagne vinegar is my preference for this dressing but fresh lemon juice is a good substitution if you’d like to turn this into a lemon vinaigrette.
  • Don’t skip the maple – if you’re tempted to skip the maple, don’t! Trust me, that little bit of sweetness adds some much needed balance and helps round out the zippy acidity of the vinegar.
  • Shake, shake, shake! it helps to count to 30 while shaking.

Start by gathering your ingredients and a small jar with a lid. Place everything inside the jar and cover tightly with the lid. Shake vigorously for a full 30-40 seconds and then enjoy!
