White Balsamic Honey and Basil Vinaigrette

Herb vinaigrette with whisk in white bowl on dark wood board.

Making your own salad dressings is so easy and much healthier for you. This vinaigrette is a delicious summer favorite that pairs perfectly with mixed greens salads with stone fruit.

I hardly ever buy salad dressings anymore. It only takes 5-6 ingredients and about 5 minutes to make a homemade vinaigrette. And, you control the quality and freshness of the ingredients you’re using, which makes it taste even better in my opinion!

This particular vinaigrette I first made to complement a mixed greens salad with grilled chicken, red onion and peaches. In the summer, I use basil in everything I can. I absolutely love the fragrance and flavor boost that fresh herbs give to food.

What You’ll Need:

  • Olive Oil
  • White Balsamic Vinegar
  • Honey
  • Fresh Basil
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper

Making the Recipe:

Making a salad dressing is so easy and can be fast too!

You start by pouring the olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Next, you’ll add the honey, a pinch of sea salt and a few twists of freshly ground pepper.

Whisk the dressing and taste it. If it needs just a little more of one of the ingredients, go ahead and add a bit more to your satisfy your taste buds.

Then, mince the basil and add it to the vinaigrette. Whisk well.

Add the vinaigrette to your salad right before serving.
