Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette

Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette!  You have to try it.   After seeing the success of my Dairy Free Ranch Dressing and my Healthy Honey Mustard Dressing, I polled all of you on Facebook the other day asking about what other condiment recipes you would like to see.

Balsamic vinaigrette was one of the more popular answers, so that one was the first one I came up with. This homemade balsamic dressing recipe is simple and delicious. You won’t have to buy any at the store after making this homemade balsamic vinaigrette recipe.

Recipe Notes

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.

  1. Like you said, "simple and delicious!" I love this dressing and I am very happy I found your website. You have a lot of great information about healthy eating and some fabulous recipes. Thank you for sharing with the world! BTW I double up on the ingredients and it usually lasts about a week or two, I eat a lot of salads! To your health!
  2. Just wondering if you have any recommendations for what brand of olive oil to buy. I struggle sometimes with the taste of the oil. Maybe I'm not buying the best kind??
    1. My mother in law is Turkish, so she buys us olive oil from the Middle Eastern market. It's usually better quality and cheaper than the grocery stores!
  3. I have been looking high and low for a sugar free t reciepe but they all fall short in the same place. You will be hard pressed to find balsamic vinegar with less than 2g of sugar per 1tbsp, while this is LOW sugar it is not SUGAR FREEE as claimed. Can you recommend a balsamic vinaigrette that is sugar free?
