Balsamic Vinaigrette

We love a good balsamic vinaigrette. After several attempts,I finally have a recipe that I love. It’s slightly sweet, tangy and so delicious. Try this on your next salad.

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp of dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small food processor (except for the oil) and blend. Slowly add the olive oil while mixing. Taste & re-season if needed. Store in a sealed container & use throughout the week on salads & veggies. Enjoy.

    Sounds great and really simple. I’m a big fan of homemade salad dressings, and I wish more people realized how easy it is to make your own. Thanks for sharing this.
