3 Easy and Luxurious Vinaigrettes

3 Easy and Luxurious Vinaigrettes

These three quick and easy luxurious vinaigrettes are a few favorites I enjoy with my salads.

The great thing about homemade dressings is that you know exactly what ingredients are in the dressing, and you can control the healthiness of the dressings. Since I am watching my sugar intake, this delicious homemade balsamic vinaigrette is the perfect dressing to go on top of my salad.

  • 3 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  1. Add olive oil, hot sauce, olive oil, garlic clove, lemon juice, pepper and salt into a shaker cup.
  2. Shake cup to mix ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Enjoy this delicious homemade balsamic vinaigrette on your salad!

My Review:

I wholeheartedly recommend this balsamic vinaigrette dressing. It tasted great with the fruit based salad. Since the salad was sweet and nutty, this dressing offered a bit of a bite while not overpowering the salad. Although we used hot sauce, it did not offer heat to the salad.  Since I enjoy spicy foods, I may add a little bit more hot sauce to the dressing next time to try to make the salad a bit more spicy.
