balsamic vinaigrette dressing

how to make

Want to take your salads from Boring to the Best?

Make your own dressing! This honey balsamic vinaigrette recipe is easy to make.

What is the ratio for a vinaigrette?

I make my honey balsamic vinaigrette with a ratio of 3 parts oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar.

To make this dressing, you'll need balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, dijon mustard, dried thyme leaves, salt and pepper.


Homemade dressing makes homemade salads taste better. Plus you can make them how you like them. If you don't want this dressing as tart, use a bit less vinegar.


To make this dressing simply combine all of the  ingredients in a bowl or jar. If you're using a bowl, whisk the ingredients. If you're using a jar, add the lid and shake it to combine.


I store my dressing in  the fridge and take it out 20 minutes before I need it because the oil solidifies. Whisk or shake well before using.


I like using this dressing on my Spinach Salad with apples, feta, and pecans for a delicious fall inspired salad.
