This isn't your average vinaigrette: Chef Marc Vidal of Boqueria in NYC blends garlic, shallots and pimentón de la Vera (smoked Spanish paprika) to make this smoky dressing. Vidal recommends using the vinaigrette for marinating pork, to drizzle over grilled meats and veg, or to finish spicy egg dishes.
While we recommend ordering some pimentón de la Vera to make the most authentic vinaigrette, you can substitute any sweet smoked Spanish paprika.
