This skinny salad dressing is absolutely amazing. You’ll love how it is easy and quick to make it. It is a family favorite and I love we can use it with all our favorite salads. It’s so versatile. Have made it a hundred times. All you need are 5 simple ingredients. You can make larger batches so you never run out.

You know what’s one of the best ways to make salads and vegetables taste amazing? Obviously, a delicious dressing! As I always say, salads are worthless without dressing. You’ll never purchase store bought balsamic dressing again after trying this one.

Skinny Salad Dressing recipe


Vinegar: you can use what you have on hand. I like organic apple cider vinegar. It is ok to use any of quality vinegar – champagne vinegar, white balsamic, red vine vinegar, white vine vinegar or balsamic vinegar. If you want even more healthier version, try lemon or lime juice.

Olive oil: it the best to buy quality olive oil. Choose cold-pressed, organic and extra virgin. Check out Things to Look for While Buying Olive Oil.

Honey: find a beekeeper who keeps the bees in the quiet place, distant from the city and polution. If you want, you can use agave syrup.

Garlic: it ads special flavor. Some people doesn’t like garlic. If I don’t have it, sometimes I just skip it. The dressing still turns out perfect. You can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic.

Mustard is made from the seeds of a mustard plant. Mustard imparts an unique flavor to this homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
