Balsamic Vinaigrette

Are you in need of a light, tangy and delicious dressing for your summer salads?  This dressing will meet all of those requirements. It’s creamy, tangy and delicious!  I’m leaving out the measurements on this one because they’ll vary depending on two things; 1. how much you’re making and 2. how tangy or sweet you want it.


  • Good quality olive oil
  • Good quality balsamic vinegar
  • Dijon mustard
  • Honey
  • Salt and Pepper


The oil to vinegar ratio is 2-1, 2 parts oil to 1 part vinegar and the Dijon and honey will be about 1-2 Tbsp depending on how much you’re making.  Add the oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey and salt.  Mix in a blender to create an emulsion. You can store this dressing in the fridge for several months.  This dressing goes very well with a spinach, strawberry and candied walnut salad!  Buen Provecho!


Tasty Additions:  Feel free to add finely minced garlic or shallots for additional flavor and texture.

The jar in the picture was a Home Goods buy, it actually has recipes for other dressings, if you can find one BUY IT!
