Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing can be easily made at home for a much better price and far better nutritional value. I’m not a fan of the salad dressings available on the market today because of the high content of sodium and additives they contain.

Growing up, the salad dressing we used was olive oil and vinegar. As the years went by I started to experiment with a variety of herbs and spices. I finally came up with the perfect mix although from time to time I do try different ingredients depending on how I feel that day.

A few months back I had the opportunity to meet Christine Cushing I also had the privilege of being given a bottle of her  Organic extra virgin olive oil to try. I used her organic extra virgin olive oil with the Metro’s brand  Irresistible Balsamic vinegar I recently reviewed.

This is a simple yet tasty vinaigrette you can try at home.
