Make this delicious homemade balsamic vinaigrette in less than 5 minutes. It is so much cheaper and fabulous on salads, veggies and as a marinade.
Ya’ll! (FYI – my Southern comes out more when I’m excited) I am in LOVE with this homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing!!
I have tried making other versions over the years but never quite found “the one”. I have mixed spices upon spices to try to mimic Good Season’s dry packet. (because that is has been my favorite up to now but the ingredients are yuck.
Well, I finally, finally, finally did! You know what the secret ingredient is? Dijon mustard!
I have literally had it all week long at lunch and dinner. Not only on salads but I just poured it right over my chicken, rice and veggies. Oh, yes I did! It is fantastic let me tell ya! Have you ever seen that hot sauce commercial with the cute little grandma saying “I put that &$%# on everything”? I’m picturing me with this balsamic vinaigrette!
After you mix up all the ingredients, just store it in your favorite store in a cruet or mason jar. I can’t wait to marinade some chicken tenders and grill those up too.
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 large clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon pepper
Simply mix all ingredients together and store in a cruet or mason jar.

I always make a vinaigrette up using pretty much the same ingredients you use but without the dijon mustard. I will try this next time I am making a dressing.
You are so right, Dijon mustard is THE secret ingredient for dressings! Thanks for your recipe. I love balsamic vinaigrette but have not had sucess with the homemade. from Foodie Friday. Linda
