Balsamic Vinaigrette

updated 2.5.2018

I couldn’t believe it when I realized I had never written a blog on balsamic vinaigrette. I thought balsamic vinaigrette was one of few dressings I’ve ever made. (Turns out I’ve made Shallot Dijon Vinaigrette.) I made this recipe specifically for a Spinach and Strawberry Salad but it will be a good dressing to have on hand while my dad’s in town. Sure to please health nuts and salad eaters everywhere.


  • 6 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T. Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 c. olive oil


In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk in olive oil. You can also place all ingredients in a jar and shake, shake, shake. Refrigerate until serving.
