Balsamic Vinaigrette with Honey and Mustard

Homemade dressing: There couldn’t be a quicker or easier way to impress guests and make any salad special. And if you’re like me, you already have the ingredients in your pantry. (Or at the very least, they are readily available at your nearest grocery store.)

The slight sweetness of this dressing works especially well with a strong cheese. I recently used it with a simple salad of mixed greens, shaved carrots and Gorgonzola crumbles.

Ingredients

3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp whole- or coarse-grain mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Whisk all ingredients together until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavors meld before using.
