Balsamic Vinaigrette. So much better than store-bought dressing. And it takes 8 minutes to make.
Do you make your own salad dressing? It’s super easy. Let me tell you about a terrific Balsamic Vinaigrette. It’s scrumptious on salad, but you don’t want to stop with that. The dressing is made of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, shallot, anchovy paste, and some herbs. It takes a few minutes to make and tastes WAY better than store-bought.
We had some beautiful Portobello Mushrooms and decided to grill them with this Vinaigrette. They were super yum!
The vinaigrette originally comes from Michele Anna Jordan’s Vinaigrettes and Other Dressings cookbook. The shallots and garlic, along with the honey, make this salad dressing nearly irresistible. I mince my shallots using a garlic press, which makes it very easy.
I absolutely love it over Portobello Mushrooms. (For an even easier option, try Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette.)
