Champagne-Garlic Vinaigrette Recipe

Once I 'staged' or interviewed at a restaurant in Phoenix, AZ where the dressings for the vegetables were as simple as this one. I was amazed. Typically, sauces and dressings have an intricate method of preparation, but at this place, all the dressings followed this exact same method and principle - a few ingredients, simple, and straightforward. I loved that. It made sense to recreate this dressing and share it with the world. I hope you enjoy it.

How to Make Champagne-Garlic Vinaigrette

This incredibly simple vinaigrette can be made for any kind of lifestyle, but if you are in a keto diet, this recipe is a perfect addition to your day to day meal prep. It doesn't take much time and this recipe yields tons of flavor and healthy fats.


Kitchen Needs:

  • Whisk
  • Bowl
  • Knife
  • Cutting board

Step One: Mince Shallots and Garlic

Using a sharp knife and a cutting board, mince the shallots and grate garlic into a same bowl. 

Step Two: Add to a Bowl, Whisk, Store

Add all other ingredients into the bowl and whisk to incorporate. There won't be an emulsified look when whisking this way. 

If you'd like to emulsify this vinaigrette, add all ingredients except for oil into a blender and blend starting slow over a medium speed. Then emulsify oil by slowly adding it into the blender.

Season and store in a container in the fridge.

How To Store

For optimal freshness, remake this sauce every 3-4 weeks. Since vinaigrettes have two components that most bacteria dislike - oil and acid (vinegar) - these are not optimal for bacterial growth. However, in order to maintain freshness, store in an airtight container/bottle in the refrigerator. Remake every 2-3 weeks, ideally.

This sauce is the perfect pairing to your weekly keto meal prep.

This is a perfect staple vinaigrette to have in your fridge at all times. If you so desire, change the champagne vinegar for sherry and call it a sherry vinaigrette. Have fun adjusting the recipe to your liking and to what you can find in your pantry.


  • ⅓ cup Champagne vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¾ cup grapeseed oil
  • 3 garlic, grated or minced
  • 1 tablespoon shallots, minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, fresh (optional)
  • Pinch of Kosher salt and black pepper


  1. Grate garlic and mince the shallots, and combine in a bowl. Pull thyme leaves from the stem and add to the same bowl.
  2. Next combine vinegar, oils, honey, salt and black pepper in the same bowl.
  3. Whisk to incorporate and taste for seasoning. The dressing will naturally separate; mix together before every use.
  4. Store in a glass jar, covered in a Tupperware.
