Pimentón Vinaigrette

  • 1 large clove garlic
  • Generous 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. sherry vinegar
  • 1 tsp. sweet (dulce) pimentón
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  • Chop the garlic, sprinkle it with the salt, and mash it into a paste with the side of a chef’s knife (or use a mortar and pestle). In a medium bowl, mix the garlic paste, oil, lemon juice, vinegar, pimentón, and pepper.
