Homemade salad dressing?! Are you nuts?! I don’t have time for that.
I said that for years. Now I make it all the time and don’t think twice about it.
Homemade dressing tastes SO much better. Plus there’s no chemical additives, no corn syrup, no MSG, no 20+ ingredients on the label. Just 8 real food ingredients I keep in my kitchen anyway.
My family loves this Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, and I think yours will, too. With summer veggies coming into season, backyard gardens prepping for harvest, and lots of potlucks in your future, now is a great time to add this deliciously easy recipe to your repertoire.
This vinaigrette is also great drizzled over grilled or roasted veggies like asparagus or zucchini, and it makes a great marinade for grilled chicken or pork.
Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
You can make this dressing in any plastic or glass container, even a mason jar.
After years of saying “I should make my own dressing,” it was this simple tool that finally got me to do it: the Pampered Chef Measure, Mix & Pour. It has four different dressing recipes printed right on the container. Now I have absolutely no excuse!
Even my kids can follow the directions on the side and be proud of their dressing at the table. I love that it’s dishwasher-safe, so after storing it in the fridge door till we run out, I just run it through the dishwasher and we make a new batch.
Combine all ingredients in plastic or glass container. Shake or stir to combine, especially just before pouring.
