  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic finely grated or crushed
  • 1 tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a small mason jar, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, grated garlic, Dijon mustard, honey, and salt and pepper.
  • Taking a whisk, whisk together for 1-3 minutes, until an emulsion fully forms with the oil and vinegar. This will allow you to get that store-bought feel from homemade balsamic dressing.
  • Serve over salad and enjoy!
