Balsamic Vinaigrette

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

Balsamic Vinaigrette:


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar, more if desired (Side Note: We enjoy a very tangy vinaigrette if you don’t use 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp of dried basil
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked 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.
