Balsamic Vinaigrette

I have had a little bit of writer’s block lately which is a problem. I have wonderful recipes & beautiful pictures for a Cucumber Tomato Salad, Lasagna, Shrimp Noodle Bowl, Bacon Cheddar Chive Waffles and Caprese Pesto Sandwich but the words are just not flowing lately so bare with me.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

I love dressings and sauces. I used to be that kid who had blue cheese dressing with everything and then ranch with everything. Okay let’s be honest occasionally I still like ranch with some pizza. But sauces and dressings can literally make or break a dish. Since we have been trying to eat a little healthier in our house I thought why not try to make some of our own dressings that don’t have a ton of unnecessary calories. The two things I have not been able to get enough of lately are honey mustard dressing and this simple balsamic vinaigrette. The perfect combination of sweet and tangy!

Balsamic Vinaigrette with Salad

Balsamic Vinaigrette


  • 1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. olive oil


  • Combine first 4 ingredients.
  • Whisk in olive oil.
  • Store in air tight container. Before every use shake to mix it up.


So whether it is tossing with some mixed greens for a salad or serving as a dipping sauce with some cheesy garlic bread you won’t want to miss this dressing.
