Smoked Paprika Vinegrette


A sweet and smokey salad dressing perfect for a variety of salads, as well as a marinade or chicken or fish.



  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 pinch white sugar, more to taste if needed
  • 1/2 cup oil *see note


  1. Combine all ingredients except oil in a blender and process until smooth. With the blender on low speed, slowly drizzle in oil. Store in a jar in the fridge.


  • *Oil: I prefer this dressing with 1/2 canola oil and 1/2 Bacon Extra Virgin Olive Oil . You could do any combination you like, including all canola or all regular olive oil. I personally prefer the lighter flavor of the canola oil over 100% olive oil in this recipe. But using some of the Bacon Oil is my very favorite!
