Easy and delicious. Perfect for dipping bread in or great for dressing a salad.

I really liked this dressing. I'm trying to watch my calories so I didn't add 1/2 cup of oil as the recipe called for. I added 1/8 of a cup and it still tasted good to me. Don't skip the honey because that's what adds just a touch of sweetness to it.Read More
Too much vinegar and Dijon as written. Back off on the vinegar to a ratio of 3:1 oil to vinegar, reduce Dijon to 1-2 teaspoons, and use only about half as much honey and this is perfect.Read More

Perfect! Just what I was looking for. This dressing has just the right balance of zip and sweet. I love vinegar and didn't think it was too strong at all. This dressing would go great on a variety of different salad ingredients. I used a combo of baby spinach, tomatoes, carrots and cheddar cheese. Delish!
I cut the recipe in half and used 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. I added a little minced garlic and it was delicious! I served this over mixed greens, cherry tomatoes and thin sliced red onion.
I chose to try this recipe because it was quick and simple and I was in a hurry. It tasted REALLY GOOD, but the vinegar was a bit overpowering. Maybe I'll put less in next time. For a quick and easy dressing, I really enjoyed it - thank you!
Perfect...but to make it even more perfect, try walnut or grapeseed oils. It will be much "lighter" in taste. Also, this works best if made in a mini food processor because it emulsifies that way. I used the "whipped" honey last time. It's very thick and adds a richness.
This was great but for a little texture, try adding a few poppy seeds! I also heated the honey for easy mixing and kept it on the counter so it didn't thicken to a paste.
fast, easy, really yummy and a little different from the ordinary. I never buy the processed grocery store stuff anymore now that I have discovered how simple it is to make a great dressing at home, and how much better the fresh stuff is!
Balsamic was a little strong, felt like it overpowered everything else. I like balsamic, so I didn't mind to much. but might try to dilute it down a bit with more oil and honey.
Just made this for the first time and I think I've found a new favorite! I tossed it with baby mixed greens, feta and dried cranberries with sliced grilled chicken on top and it was very yummy. I was just making it for myself so I used 3 Tbs. EVOO to 1 Tbs. balsamic and it was perfect! Also added a little minced garlic because I love that in almost everything! Will never buy store bought again. Thanks for the recipe.
This was pretty good - I added a clove of minced, fresh garlic. Next time I might try adding minced onion as well.
This was an ok recipe. I made it as directed and thought it was touch to tart for my taste. Added a little more honey to try to adjust the flavor. Maybe more sitting time will help too. The dressing does turn out quite dark becauce of the balsamic vinegar. Maybe next time I'll try golden balsamic vinegar.
Used white balsamic vinegar (for appearance sake) and cut back a little on the olive oil. Once whisked, the oil incorporates well with the other ingredients and does not separate into a layer. Nice blend of sweet and sour.
Really good...I used 1/4c each of balsamic and evoo.....pefect and kept the other ingredients the same. Very nice with a hint of sweetness and tang at the same time. Easy and all ingredients on hand. Thanks!
Best homemade dressing I've ever made! Perfect as is - no need for changes. Will use this over and over again. The boyfriend loved it too, and he is super picky about dressings, so that says a lot!
Yum. On the sweet side, but delicious.
How yummy! Just the right balance of flavors. I did add 1 tsp of garlic powder for a little more zing. Such a refreshing change from my basic vinaigrette.
Love this dressing made it first time as recipe states and really liked it second time I added just a bit more honey and a crushed clove of garlic was not only great on salad but everyone love dipping their bread in
Easy to make and everyone liked it.
Fantastic but with a little twist. I just switched out the Dijon for a grainy mustard. Yum
Way too much vinegar when made according to the recipe. I had to redo it 3 times to get it to an edible level. I won't be making this again.
Very nice dressing. Tangy and tart but sweet at the same time. Goes well with many kinds of salads, including baby spinach.
One of my favorite dressing recipes. I used the same ratio of oil to vinegar, but used 1/4 cup Balsamic, and completed the balance with red wine vinegar. Add just the right amounts of S&P to taste, and it's fantastic!
Good as written. I added a little crushed garlic, and some chopped frozen parsley and basil. Also, I used 1/2 balsamic, and 1/2 white balsamic.
Great over a grilled chicken salad w/spring mix.
A new favorite :) My 11 year old daughter loves that she can make this on her own :)
I just finished a salad with this dressing - my favorite I've tried so far! I followed the recipe & absolutely loved it!
Excellent quick recipe. Just what I needed. Thank you very much!
This dressing is so yummy! My hubby loved it! It has an intense flavor that we just LOVE!
Easy and delicious!
Simple, perfect as it is, but easily adjustable for preference. Mine tasted wonderful right after mixing, but now it's sitting in the fridge, and I can't wait to taste it in a few hours. :)
This is an excellent salad dressing. I used less oil (equal parts oil and vinegar) because I prefer less oily, tangier dressings. I used blue agave instead of honey and it was the perfect balance of tangy and sweet.
It's delicious! I make it with 3 Tablespoons of honey for extra sweetness.
Love it! It has the perfect oil/vinegar and sweet/tart balance. I served on a spinanch salad with mixed veggies. Thanks for the recipe :)
Great recipe but after reading several of the reviews, I tweeked it a bit! I used 1/3 cup each of balsamic and olive oil; also didn't have dijon on hand so had to use spicy brown mustard: believe it or not, the dressing was a HUGE hit :)
Love it!!! Added 2 cloves of garlic as others had suggested- One of my new favorites!
Added garlic and onion powders and it was wonderful! Kids loved it tonight and thank you GumboGirl!
Delicious. I found I had to use quite a bit to get the full flavor. Maybe less olive oil?
Just made this for our dinner tonight. Really delicious just as it stands....for our flavour preferences though, I added 1/4 tsp of Herb de Provence. If I had anymore of Trader Joes "flower pepper" I would have used that. Also, added a small fresh garlic clove. Processed all in my mini food processor. Love it.
I really love this sugar-less dressing.
Yum. Light, tangy, and a good bit of sweet. Added this to coleslaw with dried cranberries and slivered almonds. Makes a tasty, nutrient filled go to side for the week. I'll be making this again.
We were out of salad dressing at my place so I made this recipe-amazing! Tangy and tart. I made a couple changes. I added 1 tsp lemon juice and 1/2 tsp lemon pepper...and I used canola oil instead of olive because it's a bit milder. It's a great recipe-definite make-again!
Excellent as written! I didn't expect this to be as good as it was because of how few ingredients were involved, but it was really great! Very tangy, and was great on a romaine salad, and also as a dipping sauce for chicken.
First of all, I scaled it down to half of the recipe. I just did not need that much for just myself. I followed the recipe and then, after trying the end product, decided to add 1 tsp of whole grain mustard and more salt/pepper to my liking. Whole grain mysteries added a nice visual appeal and a little kick to the whole recipe. At least in my opinion. I'm sure extra salt and pepper helped my addition. But even without any of my additional tweaking this recipe was great. Thank you!
Base for the recipe was good. Had to do some minor adjustments to make it more to my taste. As other reviewers did, I added minced garlic. I also added more honey, more balsamic vinegar, and used honey mustard as well as spicy mustard to give it more flavor. Final addition was about 2 tbs of red wine. It turned out amazing! Loved the base of the recipe but lots of adjustments to make it just right.
This recipe is good, make that GREAT as is, and also with one, some or all of the variations of soy, lemon juice, basil, oregano, garlic, onion (chopped, minced, or powder). I'm sure all the others mentioned would be equally delicious! If you don't like the thick heavy consistency, use equal parts balsamic/cider vinegar. Can measure right into bottle or jar and shake and serve/store!
AWESOME!!! SOOOOOOO SIMPLE and delicious! I needed a quick dressing for a spring salad mix to go with salmon and this was really good I am very happy that I found it! It is a keeper! I am gonna make a Caprese salad with this too!
Really good dressing! I used it for a greek salad with feta cheese and kalamata olives and it was a perfect match!
Added some garlic powder, too. It was awesome!
Perfect as written!
Super easy and great flavor
Very good dressing. Made it exactly as written, tried it, and decided to add some sugar.
This was perfect! Added a garlic clove.
It's really good and super easy. I didn't even measure. Perfect
This is a salad dressing recipe that has become a staple in our house, It is simple to make, very tasty and goes well on a salad of greens with toasted pecans and dried cranberries. I have halved the recipe, but extra keeps well in the fridge as well. Thanks for the recipe!
I used the the 3:1 ratio with oil and vinegar and 1/2 the amount of honey. perfect!
This might be my favorite dressing. I used horseradish stone ground mustard and I believe I’ll use that from now on. My husband and son love this too. I don’t think I’ll ever buy a store vinaigrette again!
I love this recipe. I almost always modify any recipe I get and did so with this just by adding a bit of lemon pepper seasoning. I love the added zip. Very yummy!!!
I liked it a lot. A simple recipe, both in flavor and assembly. The perfect amount of sweet to balance the tart. Will definitely make it again!
Our favorite balsamic dressing ever! Who knew it was this easy!
This is really good. I added about tablespoon more honey since I like my dressings sweet.
WOW! This is perfect...don't change a thing!
I made no changes and it was perfect. I did not think vinegar was overpowering. I think this is a great basic recipe.
Perfect as written! I double this and always have it on hand. It’s our go to salad dressing.
I made it exactly as written and it is perfect. Make sure to use good quality balsamic and Dijon.
Love it. Have made it several times and sometimes I add less oil, or a bit of garlic, etc. Just depends on my mood but it's a standard recipe every time.
I followed some of the reviews, added a clove of garlic and reduced the vinegar slightly (used 1/4 cup). I love the recipe!
Went looking for something simple and this fits the bill and has the most amazing flavor. We keep it made at all times in our home.
made this and used it to put with my chicken and loved it! very light and yummy! i would say use to anyone who makes this use less oil!
I did what other reviewers advised and lessened the balsamic vinegar to 1/4 cup. It was amazing. A nice dip for hard cooked eggs too.
Made the recipe as is but added two cloves of garlic and put all in a blender. I like the touch of honey in the vinaigrette! Makes it thick and tangy.
Made this this morning, and put it over my spinach salad for lunch. Delicious!! My new GoTo salad dressing recipe. Wouldn't change a thing.
An easy, basic dressing.
Just what I have been looking for. Great on just greens and tomatoes! Nice tangy + sweet combination.
Delicious! Served this on a chef salad. Added a half tablespoon more honey than called for in the recipe and a bit of garlic powder. Everyone loved it.
great dressing and so easy to make. Used it on a salad of baby spinach, walnuts, feta cheese and craisins and it was delicious. All of my house mates have been using it since I made it :)
really love making my own dressings; this one was very good; my fussy family tried it and it was a hit.
tastes great. followed recipe exactly and used approx 1/4 tsp of salt and pinch of black pepper. new favorite!
4-1/2 * === Couldn't figureout how to do the 1/2. I just made this, used plenty of salt and pepper, but also added a few drops of white wine vinegar to "cut" the heaviness a bit.
Finally.... A really good dressing! I cut back the balsamic to 1/4 cup and added 1 TSP of crushed garlic, as some other reviewers recommended. Couldn't be any easier to make.
This dressing was sooo good! The kids helped me put it together which made the results that much more successful for us. EASY, DELICIOUS and SATISFYING! I had fresh herbs in my salad (basil)...I think this would be good with some fresh basil in the dressing.
A bit too much vinegar for me - I cut back to 1/4 cup, and it was still nice and tangy. I would add either a clove of garlic or a little mince shallot to give it some bite.
This is now my favorite salad dressing!
Very easy and delicious
Awesome Sauce as is but also added my own touch to it with a few additional spices.
I made it as and it was perfect. I understand some people need to adjust the tartness of the vinegar, but I like it tart.
This was very yummy! I cut the recipe in half since I was just making it for myself. I still added 1 tbsp of honey because my honey isn't that sweet. I'm glad I did, because it was just perfect!
Absolutely easy! Its such a delicious and healthy dressing for a variety of salads. I make it all the time. Everyone goes nuts over it. I use high quality balsamic and olive oil.
Loved it as is, it is a bit on the sweet side but the bf likes that. I add things as I have on hand like garlic, throw in basil or some feta- a very good base for those who like a sweeter dressing. Use it all the time!
My compliments to the chef. I made this perfect dressing even perfecter ; ) by adding 1/8 teaspoon onion powder.
Quick, easy and flavorful. I make it all the time.
Actually it was very good. I was a little skeptical.
I love this dressing but I add a bit of crushed garlic or paste of it too to the mix. here is mine http://anomickitten.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-eat-your-greens-raw-with-it-cant.html
I've made this twice and followed the instructions both times. It's wonderful. I also might start hunting for a dijon mustard recipe, so that I'm not using prepared mustard - but it's excellent as is. (I think I could drink it.)
Super easy. Made it exactly as written. Really good!
