Balsamic Vinaigrette

This quick and easy vinaigrette recipe would pair quite nicely with a Caprese salad.


3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar


Fresh-ground pepper

Optional add-ins

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 to 2 cloves minced garlic

2 to 3 teaspoons minced fresh herbs or 1 teaspoon dried herbs like oregano

A few teaspoons honey for a slightly sweeter dressing


Combine the olive oil and balsamic in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Add a big pinch of salt and a little black pepper and any of the optional ingredients. Screw on the lid and shake hard.


This vinaigrette will keep in the fridge for about a week.
