Tarragon Dijon Salad Dressing Recipe

This tarragon dijon dressing is quick and easy to make, and turns your salad into something truly delicious!

I love it when my readers send me recipes. Especially when they turn out to be this delectable!

A small, white bowl sits filled with this Tarragon Dijon Dressing, ready to pour over your salad.

Meredith P. sent me this recipe, and while I didn’t follow it exactly, I still ended up with a dressing I will use again and again. I will share her original recipe below in case you’d like to try the original. However, I simply didn’t have everything on hand, so I improvised, and I’m not sorry I did!

This dressing is packed with flavor but still has a light feel to it. It won’t drown your salad or overtake the other flavors from the vegetables. It only enhances those flavors.

This will keep for several weeks, if not a full month in your fridge. But if you don’t think you can eat it that fast, feel free to cut the recipe in half.
