Tasty Homemade Salad Dressing in Under 3 minutes

I have no idea why people buy salad dressing anymore. It is so unbelievably easy to make with a few ingredients you probably have in your pantry already. My favorite go to salad dressing is a zippy little number featuring balsamic vinegar. It’s sweet and tangy and works with just about any veggies or proteins you could through into a salad bowl. And the most time consuming part of the dressing is mincing shallot, which takes about a minute and a half, so it’s a whip it up whiz of a recipe. The best part, make extra and store it in old mason jars or jam jars. Keep it in the frig and pull it out when you need it…just like store bought products but better for you and much cheaper. Try this once and I promise you’ll never look back. Enjoy!

Balsamic and Dill Vinaigrette Spiked with Mustard
A Girl and Her Kitchen

1/4 c balsamic vinegar
3/4 c good olive oil
1 heaping tsp Dijon mustard
1 heaping tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp agave (honey ok substitute)
1 shallot, minced
1 jar with screw-top lid

In a jar (jam jar or mason jar, something with a tight fighting, screw-top lid) add all of the ingredients. Tightly close the lid and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Taste for seasoning, adjust as needed and enjoy. Keeps refrigerated for weeks and weeks. Works with almost any salad.
