Easy Salad Dressing
If you like balsamic vinegar, this creamy balsamic dressing should become part of your regular salad routine. It’s super easy to make and contains all ingredients that you have on hand already – balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey, mayonnaise, salt & pepper, parsley and olive oil. You can whisk it all together in a bowl or use a small food chopper or food processor to blend it. Oil and vinegar tend to separate when combined, but some ingredients act as emulsifying agents, holding them together for the long haul. This dressing stays thick and creamy because it has so many emulsifying agents included – honey, mustard, mayonnaise (an emulsion of water and oil already) and even balsamic vinegar.
What to use This Dressing On
This creamy balsamic dressing was originally written for a grilled skirt steak salad that included avocado, grilled corn, grilled onion, fresh tomatoes, blue cheese and two types of lettuce. It’s delicious in that salad, but also lends itself really well to lots of other dishes too. Try it on a simple air-fried chicken breast or simple grilled steak. It also works well on roasted vegetables.
How to Store Creamy Balsamic Dressing
Store any leftover dressing in a jar or airtight container in the refrigerator. It should last for at least 3 – 4 weeks, but you’ll use it up before then! 😉
