I have three salad dressings I make all the time…

A simple asian soy dressing. Creamy garlic lime dressing. And this balsamic vinaigrette.


I make at least one of these every single week, and sometimes all three.

Making The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

Today’s dressing, The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette, is a recipe I’ve tweaked over the years to be perfectly tangy-sweet and silky in texture.

The tantalizing flavor is based on good quality aged balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, honey, a touch of dijon mustard, and herbs.

How To Make The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

It’s important to buy a very good aged balsamic vinegar. The longer the balsamic vinegar has been aged, the sweeter, milder, and richer it becomes.

You’ll need less honey in The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette recipe if you use an older vinegar.

To Make The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette

Place all the ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously. The mustard with help emulsify the vinaigrette and give it a thick luxurious quality.

That’s it.

The Best Balsamic Vinaigrette is fabulous over robust spinach and kale salads, romaine salads, and even over roasted vegetables.

    Can you sub regular yellow mustard for dijon? That’s all I have in and don’t want to buy some for the small amount I would use for this. Sounds delicious!
