Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette is super easy to make, it’s cheaper than store-bought, and it can be used as a salad dressing, a marinade, a dip, and more!
A while back I shared my recipe for Cucumber Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette, but the recipe is just too good to not share in its own post.
This dressing has always been one of my favorites– tied with ranch — and it’s so much tastier when made at home.
With only six ingredients, Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette is super easy to make. The best part? It can be so much more than a salad dressing. It makes a great marinade for chicken and veggies, plus it’s perfect as a dip.
What’s your favorite salad dressing?
Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk vigorously. Alternatively, combine ingredients in a jar, secure the lid, and shake well.
- Store vinaigrette in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
- Half the recipe if you only need a small amount of dressing, or double (or triple or more!) it to make more.
- For a touch of sweetness, drizzle in a small amount of honey or pure maple syrup.
