This Basic Balsamic Dressing is a very versatile salad dressing using only a few ingredients. It is salty, spicy and complements all kinds of green salads. It goes well with tomato, vegetable type salads and as well as fruit driven salads.
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. If you dress a salad for 4-6 people that means 20-30 calories only from the dressing!
It will keep your salad calories light but it is heavy on flavour! If you want to lighten up your dressing to zero calories from fat then check out this similar tasty dressing on my No Fat Strawberry Spinach Salad.
The Basic Balsamic Dressing is delicious on this Roasted Pear Salad.
Or try it with this delicious Melon and Crispy Prosciutto.
