Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette–Simple Staple

photo 2 (3)photo 5 photo 4 This is a quick go to salad dressing with no chopping, no dicing and no fussing. When I need a salad dressing quickly this is what I do. Recently I have been using Maille Mustards quite a lot , if you haven’t tried their products I would recommend checking them out.  Available in most supermarkets their products include a horseradish mustard and a particularly good honey mustard which I used on my Salmon this evening as well. Look for them or order on line at or for information go to . These ingredients should always be on hand in your pantry so you can whip up a delicious salad dressing at a moment’s notice without using bottled ones. Be in control of your own ingredients and the food you eat as much as possible. This will literally take you under 5 minutes to prepare and I can almost swear you’ll never use a bottled dressing again.


2 tbsp. Dijon Mustard–as stated I used Maille’s Dijon

3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

3 tbsp. olive oil

a splash of lemon juice ( I just squeezed 1/2 lemon)

Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste


I use a whisk, but a fork will do in a pinch. Mix Mustard, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice  Mix until well blended, then pour the olive oil in slowly until well blended. Add salt and pepper to your own taste. Perfect over any greens. Can be stored in a jar in fridge for at least 3 to 5 days.
