Today I am reposting an oldie, but goodie: my easy homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
This is one of my most popular and well-loved recipes, complete with some new YouTube video love. 🙂
The ingredient list is pretty simple, and you likely already have these items in your pantry or fridge.
My original post included instructions on how to make a single serving, which I do all the time. But! I know some people prefer to make a whole jar to eat off for a week or two. So I refreshed things a bit.
I love using a mason jar to make this lately. If you would rather make a whole bottle, use the proportions in parentheses in the below recipe.
This dressing is pretty strong and flavorful, so you don’t need a ton to get big flavor. One serving is about 1.5 tablespoons. If you need more, you don;t have to feel too bad since it is pretty light and healthy.
Balsamic vinaigrette is one of my ALL time favorites because it is so versatile. I use it multiple times a week, and I use it in a ton of my recipes here on the blog.
