    Balsamic salad dressing is one of my absolute favorites. It has the best combination of flavors and adds the perfect touch to so many different salads. We love serving it with a big chopped salad or steak salad. It also tastes delicious drizzled over a caprese salad.

    This balsamic dressing is so easy to whip up in 5 minutes or less. I bet you already have everything you need in your pantry, too. The flavor is slightly sweet with a little bit of tang from the balsamic vinegar. The honey adds the perfect sweetness, while helping to bind the oil and vinegar together. You could even add in a few spoonfuls of mayo or Greek yogurt to give it a creamy consistency. So tasty!

    Preparation

    COMBINE the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl or mason jar.

    WHISK until the dressing is well combined. Then cover with lid and store in the fridge until ready to use.

    SHAKE the dressing just before serving, then drizzle over your favorite salad.

    Storing

    I love to keep the balsamic dressing in a mason jar in the fridge. It will keep for up to 2 weeks. Before each use, just give it a big shake since the oil and vinegar will likely separate.
