Herby Vinaigrette

Source: https://www.chopchopfamily.org/recipe/herby-vinaigrette/

Make a jar of this bright-tasting, green-flecked salad dressing — and then use it to make something else! We use the vinaigrette in a number of recipes in this issue — the Build-Your-Own Grain Salad, Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes, and Three Sisters Salad — but it’s also great as a dip for raw vegetables and, of course, to dress a simple green salad.
