Balsamic Vinaigrette

Jump to recipe

This Balsamic Vinaigrette is a simple and perfect recipe that can be used as a marinade, a dressing, or even a glaze for meats and fish.  It’s rich, tangy, and sweet.  And it takes 5 minutes to make!

I love this vinaigrette.  It’s simple and easy to make and so versatile.  I started using it as a marinade for my grilled veggies in the summer a few years ago.  Then over time, my family and I discovered that we love eating it with almost everything.

There are so many layers of flavor but they are so simple that it makes this recipe so perfect for me.  The tangy dijon balanced by the sweet honey, and the bold balsamic that brings everything together!  This vinaigrette literally livens up anything.  I’ve used it to marinate veggies to grill on the barbeque, I’ve used it to make my Cauliflower Steak with Hummus Dressing, to glaze my salmon before baking, and my little ones even use it to dip their spinach leaves to eat.

There’s nothing this sauce cannot do!

There are two ways to make this.  In a bowl with a whisk or in a mason jar.  I usually tend to make it in a jar because it’s the quicker option for me but I’ve used the whisk before.  Regardless of how you mix up your ingredients, make sure they’ve been emulsified completely.  It’s that easy!
