Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette

Looking at salad dressing labels can be a scary thing sometimes! Although it tastes great,  it most often is not great for your body too. This is why I was elated when I came across recipes for my three favorite dressings — homemade dairy free ranch, honey mustard and balsamic! These three recipes are extremely versatile, as they not only go with salads, but also can be paired with any kind of chicken dinner, especially homemade chicken tenders for the kids! Your mouth and body will thank you for taking the extra minute to make your own sauces for your meal.

You can find the recipes for the other two dressings on My Whole Food Life, and here is the recipe for the balsamic vinaigrette:

 

Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette

1/3 cup olive oil
2 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 T red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic minced or pressed
1/4 scant tsp ground mustard
1 T lemon juice.

Whisk all the ingredients together. That’s it. I store my dressing in a small mason jar in the fridge.  It should keep for a couple weeks.  Since there are no additives in this, it will solidify in the fridge.  Pull it out a few minutes before you use it again.  Or just make it as you need it.
