Sharing a quick and delicious recipe for a healthy salad dressing: honey balsamic!



1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 minced garlic clove

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1:

Begin by combining the balsamic vinegar with extra virgin olive oil in a bowl. This dynamic duo forms the foundation of your dressing, delivering a perfect balance of acidity and richness.

Step 2:

Introduce 2 tablespoons of honey into the mix, providing a natural sweetness that harmonizes with the balsamic’s acidity. Adjust the quantity based on your desired level of sweetness.

Step 3:

Add a teaspoon of Dijon mustard to the blend. This not only enhances the flavor profile but also contributes a subtle zing that elevates the overall taste.

Step 4:

Season your creation with garlic and dried herbs, with salt and pepper to taste, ensuring the dressing reaches the perfect balance of savory and sweet.

Step 5:

Seal the ingredients in a mason jar, giving them a good shake. This emulsifies the mixture, creating a cohesive and velvety dressing that will beautifully coat your salad.
