Brazilian Vinaigrette in a white bowl

Brazilian Vinaigrette

  • Yield: Serves 6-8
  • Cuisine: Brazilian


A delicious fresh condiment traditionally served with grilled meats. Serve it along side steak, chicken or fish.  For a traditional Brazilian “churrasco” (aka bbq) serve with rice and beans on the side!  This recipe is highly adaptable.  Feel free to taste and adjust according to your preferences (more salt and pepper, vinegar amount, extra peppers or tomatoes etc.)


  • 4 large tomatoes, diced small (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium white onion or 1/2 large, diced small (about 1 cup)
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced small (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup minced flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup neutral oil (like avocado or vegetable, but olive oil works as well)
  • 4 tablespoons white vinegar or white wine vinegar (I often do half of each, white wine vinegar is a little more mild)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper  


Add all ingredients to a bowl and toss to combine.  Chill for at least an hour (and up to a few)  before using. Keep in mind that flavors, including salt, intensifies after sitting so taste when ready to serve and you can always add additional salt, if needed.  You may also add more vinegar if you prefer things more tangy!
