Favorite Balsamic Vinaigrette


  • 1 small garlic clove, smashed and minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (avocado oil is a great option, too)


  1. In a bowl whisk together the garlic, salt and pepper, Dijon, honey and balsamic vinegar.
  2. Drizzle the olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking as you go, until the dressing is emulsified.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours to allow flavors to blend. Will keep several weeks in the refrigerator. Shake well prior to using.
