Easy Balsamic Dressing



This homemade dressing is such an awesome, easy, inexpensive alternative to store bought.  With only five ingredients that you likely have on hand, you’ll get great taste along with the satisfaction of knowing exactly what you’re feeding yourself and your family.




  • 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder, salt, and pepper
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

Choose a container that shuts tightly, since you’ll need to vigorously shake the dressing before each use.

Add the garlic powder, salt, pepper and pinch of sugar to the bottom of the container.  Add the vinegar and mix.  Add the oil and mix well.  This dressing is best enjoyed the next day.

Store in the fridge

  • salad
  • grilled vegetable marinade
  • drizzled on salmon
  • sandwiches and wraps
Switch or Ditch
  • This dressing is just as good with red wine vinegar, instead of balsamic
  • Some people always use olive oil when a recipe calls for raw oil.  I do really like the dressing with olive oil, but it becomes difficult to use when refrigerated, so I am in the habit of using vegetable oil.
