Pecan Vinaigrette

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.


1 cup

Its slight nutty flavor and lip-puckering tartness make this my go-to dressing for salads and steamed vegetables. And if you run out, whisk together another batch in mere minutes! —Kathleen Specht, Clinton, Montana


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, stir in pecans.
