A well-crafted balsamic vinegar salad dressing can transform ordinary greens into a delicious meal that captures the essence of the season. In this article, we'll guide you through the creation of the perfect fall balsamic vinegar salad dressing that will elevate your salads to a whole new level.
1/4 cup Spark Balsamic Vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced or grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard until well combined.
Stir in your choice of honey or maple syrup. Start with one tablespoon and taste as you go. Add more if you prefer a sweeter dressing.
Add the minced or grated garlic to the mixture and whisk until fully incorporated.
Slowly drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil while whisking continuously. This helps create an emulsion, resulting in a creamy and well-balanced dressing.
Season your dressing with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Take a moment to taste your dressing.
