Everyone needs to know how to make a good balsamic dressing! This 3-Ingredient Balsamic Dijon Vinaigrette is beyond easy to make and adds loads of flavour to any salad. Try it as a marinade!

Balsamic vinaigrette is a classic for salads. Who doesn’t love it?! (I mean, if you don’t, I guess that’s okay). But honestly, if you’re new to whipping up your own homemade salad dressings and you don’t know where to start and you’re used to buying them ready-made in a bottle, I feel you. It can seem tedious or annoying when you can easily grab a bottle out of your cupboard. Or maybe you have tried making a dressing before but it was just gross. I’ve been there, too.

But let me tell you: this 3-ingredient (yes!) balsamic dijon vinaigrette will change your world.

Because…

  1. It takes hardly a minute to make
  2. It’s SO incredibly tasty
  3. It has zero added sugar and you know exactly what’s in it

All you need for this recipe is balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, and olive oil.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

Instructions

  1. Add vinegar and mustard to bowl and stir.

  2. GRADUALLY add olive oil to vinegar & dijon mixture while whisking vigorously. You can either slowly drizzle it while whisking simultaneously, or whisk and add small amounts intermittently. 

  3. Adding the olive oil gradually will allow the oil + vinegar to emulsify smoothly to avoid separation.

  4. Use as a dressing or marinade right away, or store in airtight container in fridge for up to 4 weeks.

That’s it! I know you’ll love this dressing as much as I do. If you want some more salad dressing recipes, check out these:
