A quick and easy 6 ingredient Creamy Balsamic Dressing that's the perfect topping for any salad! It's tangy with a hint of sweetness, and super tasty! No blender required, simply whisk everything together and you've got a lovely salad dressing in under 5 minutes!
Add this homemade dressing a house salad or my strawberry spinach salad!
I've recently started incorporating more fresh vegetables into my diet and have started making my own homemade salad dressings. I've found that a basic vinaigrette or this balsamic salad dressing are quickly becoming my go-to dressing whenever I whip up a quick salad.
This balsamic dressing is so flavorful and it is so easy to make. The flavor is zesty, slightly sweet, and a little herby from the seasonings.
It has an ultra creamy texture that beats store-bought salad dressings every time!
I use this for my favorite salads, especially caprese salads - it's the perfect compliment! It's even good on fresh vegetables as a dressing or dip! Best part, no food processor required and only 6 simple ingredients!
This easy salad dressing only has a handful of ingredients!
Balsamic Vinegar - the acidity of the vinegar adds such a great taste to this dressing. Try to use a high quality balsamic vinegar for the best taste.
Honey - just a touch of sweetness from the honey balances out the bold flavors of the dressing.
Garlic - use fresh garlic and dice it as finely as possible to release all of that zesty flavor! Avoid using the jarred minced garlic if you can, fresh garlic is the better option.
Dijon Mustard - a little bit of dijon mustard adds an intense flavor that makes this creamy dressing so tasty!
Mayonnaise - this main ingredient adds a rich and creamy texture to the dressing. It's a creamy emulsion of egg yolk and extra virgin olive oil so that you don't have to use a high speed blender to do it on your own. It's an easy way to add a creamy texture with minimal effort.
Italian Seasoning - the dried herbs add a nice bold flavor that gives this homemade creamy balsamic dressing recipe extra flavor!
This recipe is versatile and has so many different uses! It's a great option as a dip for fresh veggies and also a delicious marinade for chicken! My favorite way to use this dressing is to pour on top of a house salad and serve with my smoked chicken breasts or pan seared shrimp.
You can also use this dressing on sandwiches like this chicken caprese sandwich or drizzle it on top of bruschetta for added flavor.
