Ingredients

  • cup extra virgin olive oil
  • cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Put all the ingredients in a mason jar. Tightly close the lid and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds or more until the dressing has thickened.
  • Can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container. I recommend using the dressing within 2 weeks for the best quality.

Notes

Storage Tips
I prefer to refrigerate all of my homemade dressings to keep them as fresh as possible and I always err on the side of safety in my kitchen. Since this Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette contains a touch of Dijon, I'd recommend refrigeration.
If you refrigerate a dressing that contains honey, it will thicken a bit as the consistency of honey changes when chilled. Just leave it out on the counter to take the chill off while you prepare your salad and give it a good shake before pouring and it will be perfect.
