Add all of the ingredients in a small jar, screw on lid and shake vigorously until combined. Serve over your favorite salad ingredients.

Pairing Idea: I love to use this pesto vinaigrette to top of fish or use in a bright and fresh summer salad. Serve big juicy slices of summer tomatoes and fresh mozzarella over Little Leaf Farms Baby Red & Green Leaf lettuce. You can add on chopped antipasto ingredients like marinated artichokes, green beans, peppers, black olives, and chopped salami. Sometimes I use pizza dough to make warm garlic knots on the grill and add them to the salad for a perfect pairing with the pesto vinaigrette.

Pairing Idea: You can use this sweet Dijon vinaigrette as a marinade for grilled chicken. Chop up the grilled chicken on a bed of Little Leaf Farms Baby Spring Mix and create a fresh garden salad with carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas, thinly sliced red onion and savory croutons. You can get creative with a salad like this and mix in any veggies you have on hand – it’s a “fridge clean out” salad!

Add all of the ingredients in a small jar, screw on lid and shake vigorously until combined. Serve over your favorite salad ingredients.

Pairing Idea: Use this chipotle lime vinaigrette in a salad with a Southwest twist. Start with Little Leaf Farms Baby Crispy Green Leaf lettuce and add in black beans, grilled corn, chopped avocado, cubes of sharp cheddar or pepper jack cheese and crunchy tortilla strips. You could add chicken, sliced steak, or I love to chop a grilled black bean burger on top!
