Description

This amazingly rich and creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette is the best ever! The key is blending it in the blender for velvety smoothness. Your salads will never be the same!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (aged balsamic vinegar of Modena)
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic
  • heaping 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender (blending is key for a thick and creamy dressing, I used my Nutribullet) and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Dressing will thicken as it chills, so stir in 1-2 tbsp more water as needed. Dressing will keep up to a week or longer in the fridge.
