This homemade balsamic vinaigrette recipe is a quick and customizable emulsion of balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic, olive oil, and seasonings.
‣ 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar ‣ 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard ‣ 1 teaspoon honey ‣ 1/2 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced ‣ 1 pinch salt, to taste ‣ 1 pinch black pepper, to taste ‣ 1/2 cup olive oil
In a medium bowl, add balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, and garlic, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Give the ingredients a quick whisk.
While continuing to whisk, slowly pour in the olive oil. The goal is to blend in the olive oil so that it incorporates with the rest of the ingredients. I typically use the sides of the bowl as my guide, whisking until the line of oil around the edges disappears.
