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.

Most store bought dressings are loaded with sugar.  However, this dressing recipe contains no sugar at all.

Just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen!  This dressing is so easy to make, you will never buy dressing again!  It only takes a few minutes!

Prep Time 5 min Serves 1/2 cup     adjust servings


  • 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


  1. Whisk all the ingredients together. That’s it.


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.

Healthy Homemade Ketchup Recipe

Healthy Homemade Ketchup Recipe. Lately, I have been doing a lot of condiments, so you probably had seen this homemade ketchup recipe coming.

First we did the BBQ Sauce, then we did the Dairy Free Ranch and now homemade ketchup.  Everyone likes ketchup, but most people don’t make their own. The funny thing is, it is super simple to make a ketchup.

If you have toddlers like me, you know that kids just eat gobs of ketchup if they are not monitored.  If my daughters had their way, they would eat it by itself.

This ketchup was so easy to make and contains just a small amount of sweetener.  Most commercial brands contain high fructose corn syrup.

The few store bought ketchup brands that I have tried without high fructose corn syrup left a lot to be desired.

This recipe makes about 1 cup and should keep in the fridge a few weeks.  I store mine in a glass jar.  You can also freeze it for longer storage!

To keep it vegan, just use maple syrup instead of honey.  Works great!
