Honey Balsamic Salad Dressing
Salad dressing from a bottle will never taste as good as a simple homemade dressing. A touch of honey and some good balsamic vinegar make this salad dressing flavorful yet light. I make a batch of this about once a week and keep it in the fridge next to the greens. With such a flavorful dressing a little bit goes a long way, so be sure you choose the best quality ingredients you can. Honey balsamic salad dressing is a great choice for the summer months, but if you are like me and can’t wait, go ahead and make it now!
My favorite salad to make with this dressing is a simple salad with baby spinach, sliced strawberries, and slivered almonds, as I made for this year’s Easter lunch. All of the flavors and textures work really well together and make a gorgeous presentation.
Honey Balsamic Dressing
1/4 cup good balsamic vinegar
almost 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs honey
pinch kosher salt
Put the balsamic vinegar, honey, and a pinch of kosher salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Slowly add the olive oil while whisking until incorporated. Alternately, you can put all the ingredients in a sealed bottle and shake them up to combine. Enjoy over many fresh salads- this batch should last you at least 3 family sized salads, or several personal sized ones.
