Ultimate Balsamic Salad Dressing

Simple is best when it comes to salad dressing. Great vinegar and olive oil make any salad feel like you are at a fancy restaurant!

Ultimate Balsamic Dressing

The 3 medals aceto balsamico is perfect for show stopping salad dressings! The acidity balanced with a touch of sweetness will take a simple salad to the next level. We always double this recipe as the dressing will keep well in the fridge for 2 weeks.

Ready to serve in: 5-10 minutes
Serves: Side Salad for 4-6 people

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar (3 medals preferred)
  • 1/2 shallot, minced finely2 tbsp EVOO
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • pinch of black pepper, optional




Method

In a bowl mix together the dijon, minced shallots, salt, and honey until combines. Add the balsamic vinegar and mix well. Slowly stream in the EVOO while continuing to mix. Mix well until the dressing looks emulsified (not drops of oil on the surface). Add a pinch of pepper if desired.
