Honey balsamic dressing

I don’t know about you, but I hate cleaning gadgets. I love salad dressings with fresh shallots (like this creamy basil dressing) but I hate, hate, HATE washing a blender or food processor. They always end up needing hand-washing, and then nobody wants to dry them or put them away so they languish on the drying rack for about a week after use.


So I always get very excited when I find an easy and tasty salad dressing that doesn’t require use of a gadget. This dressing fits the bill. I served it most recently on a mixed greens-chicken-pine nut-grapefruit salad and it was delish.


Honey balsamic dressing

Adapted from 101 Cookbooks

  • 1 1/2 tbl. olive oil
  • 2 tbl. balsamic vinegar (white is good if you have it)
  • 1 1/2 tbl. honey
  • 1 1/2 tbl. lemon juice
  • salt, to taste
  1. In a small saucepot (like the precious red tin one, pictured), over very low heat, combine ingredients. Stir well until honey has melted. Can be refrigerated for a few days.
