Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing. Tangy. Easy to make. Good on greens, vegetables, or Caprese Salad.
Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette
This Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing is so easy, anyone can do it. And isn’t it an excellent time for making your own salad dressings or marinades? You likely have everything on hand, so there’s no need to go to the store. This recipe takes about 5 minutes to make since it is comprised of only three ingredients. All you have to do is measure and whisk the ingredients together. You can use it over a Caprese Salad, any green salad, or as a marinade for vegetables or meat. Try it. Delicious!
I especially like this vinaigrette, which can be made with or without garlic and shallots. Since I was making this dressing to go over Caprese Salad, I left the garlic and shallots out, but it would be good with those ingredients, too. (See Balsamic Vinaigrette for another option.)
