Basic Balsamic Dressing

Basic Balsamic Dressing

This salad dressing is very versatile with only a few ingredients. It is salty, spicy and complements all kinds of green salads. It goes well with tomato, vegetable type salads and also goes well with fruit driven salads such as  Melon and Crispy Prosciutto.  It is one of my go-to dressings. You can mix up a double batch if you like. It will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Notice the ratio of oil to vinegar is lower than many recipes so it is actually a  fairly light dressing and it doesn’t taste sharp like some where the ratio is 1:3 oil to vinegar. 1 Tbsp of olive oil equals 13.5 grams of fat or about 120 calories.
