My daughter loves everything sour (vinegar and lemon in particular) so I made her this tart salad dressing with 2 types of vinegar and lemon juice. It goes great with red leaf lettuce or other mild salads. She will eat the whole bowl by herself.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 head red leaf lettuce
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 stalk green onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard, or more to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Wash red leaf lettuce, separate the leaves, and spin dry in a salad spinner. Tear leaves into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a salad bowl with bell pepper and scallion.
  2. 2 Combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt, mustard, and pepper in a resealable jar. Close and shake until well combined.
  3. 3 Drizzle as much dressing as desired over the salad and toss to combine. Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator.
