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.
- It takes hardly a minute to make
- It’s SO incredibly tasty
- 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.
Balsamic Dijon Vinaigrette
A classic balsamic vinaigrette made with 3 ingredients and in a minute or less! Perfect for leafy green salads or a marinade for red meat.
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
Add vinegar and mustard to bowl and stir.
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.
Adding the olive oil gradually will allow the oil + vinegar to emulsify smoothly to avoid separation.
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:
