Balsamic & Avocado Oil Salad Dressing

I you know me, then you know that I much prefer to make my own dressings and food in general.  I find that a LOT of salad dressings found in stores have too much added sugar and preservatives that I don't want to be eating.  I came across this recipe from Bare Feet In The Kitchen, and tweaked it a bit.  Such a good combo and goes great with many different salad combos.  My husband likes it better than store bought!  I like to make mine with avocado oil, but olive oil would work great too.




  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (I use the tubes of minced garlic from Aldi)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • Mix balsamic & avocado oil into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Add honey, mustard, garlic, salt/pepper
  • Whisk everything together until thoroughly mixed  

Can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.    We usually go through it pretty fast though, and it doesn't last that long.  I keep mine in this container I found at Bed Bath & Beyond, but they also sell bottles specifically for salad dressing.

Happy Cooking!
