Hi! This is my recipe and I want to let you know that I only use a really good quality balsamic for this which tends to be sweet. If you do use a lesser quality vinegar you may need to add a little more honey. It still turns out great!
This seems more like a honey mustard vinaigrette than a balsamic vinaigrette.
About 30 years ago, I was watching a cooking show where they were making salad dressing. They said that if you added mustard, it would act like a binder between the oil and vinegar. They said you could always use lemon juice, too. Since then, mustard is always added. It doesn't take much. I prefer my dressing more 1:1 ratio of oil and vinegar. Also, if you use garlic powder instead of fresh and leave out the shallot, you can leave the dressing out on the counter, so if you are using olive oil, you don't have to wait for it to "melt." I always have some made and ready on the counter, and it is wonderful.
Simple and delicious! Definitely use a good quality balsamic and you can't go wrong. This has a nice sweetness to it - perfect over mixed greens! Thanks for a great recipe MATTSBELLY!
I'm not typically a fan of balsamic vinegar, but I did like this dressing. Neither overly sweet nor overly tangy, tho' I did adjust the oil and vinegar to the 3:1 ratio I prefer.
This is incredible. I made this early this morning so it would have time to set before dinner. I did increase the garlic but that's really a matter of personal taste. I think this would be really good with some chopped fresh basil.
The first words out of my daughter’s mouth were “This is really great dressing, where did you get it?” When I told her I got it on AR, she immediately wanted the recipe. This dressing had the perfect combination of flavors for us. We loved it. If you don’t have a high quality balsamic vinegar, I recommend adding a little extra honey to compensate for it.
FABULOUS!!!! I made a grilled romaine lettuce salad with roasted yellow & red cherry tomatoes, roasted red pepper and topped with feta, with this dressing on the side. Our main dish was Korean Beef scewers w/rice noodles (300 CALORIES) that my neighbor made......it was a perfect combo and caloric wise.....approx 450-ish TOTAL! I will make this dressing forever!!!! I didn't have shallots so I subbed with a oinch of onion powder.....Did the trick! THANKS!!!!!
