Simple Salad Dressing

Most store-bought dressings are filled with sugar, sodium, and preservatives. Try making your own simple dressing with just a few ingredients you can find in your cupboard.

salad dressing being poured on a salad

 ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
 ½ cup balsamic vinegar
 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
 1 tbsp honey
 1 tsp dried oregano or Italian seasoning
 salt and pepper, to taste

Add all ingredients in a jar with tight-fitting lid (like a Mason jar). Secure the lid and shake to combine.


Dressing will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days. The olive oil may separate and solidify in the fridge, so you should allow it to come to room temperature 10-15 minutes before you're ready to eat. Shake before using.
