Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Today, I'd like to share a simple recipe for one of my favorite salad dressing, Balsamic Vinaigrette.  Although you could easily buy it from a store, it's so easy that there's no reason not to make it yourself.

Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard

- Whisk the mustard and vinegar together in a small bowl first.
- Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
- Stir while slowly adding olive oil.

Try using a variety of lettuce other than iceberg.  There's really no way to make iceberg lettuce taste good other than to drown it in ranch, cheese, and bacon bits.  For my lunch salads, I like to have romaine lettuce with Balsamic Vinaigrette and grated Pecorino Romano cheese on top.


  1. I love oil and vinegar dressings - they make me feel healthier. You've added a nice touch with the mustard, would love to give this a try. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. sounds like such a good dressing! and so much better without all the greace and sourcream that you find in so many of them!! will try it later today!
