Sweet balsamic salad dressing

Now this balsamic salad dressing is what I call simple!

I normally don’t like balsamic vinegar very much so I was a bit apprehensive about giving it another shot. However, I must say that this particular balsamic salad dressing recipe uses a small amount which isn’t too over-powering. Success! I ended up loving it. I found the recipe online but tweaked it to my liking.

Balsamic vinaigrette can typically be enjoyed with all kinds of salads. I have even used this particular recipe as a marinade

I used an arugala/kale blend salad to go with my dressing and added all sorts of tasty extras like shredded carrots, red cabbage, avocados, and raw pumpkin seeds. I like to call this salad my super-food blend because It’s filled with some pretty great stuff!

I had made just enough for my Hubby and me to enjoy for about 3 days. We each try and incorporate at least 1-2 salads per day with each of our meals. It’s been working out great so far and It’s all thanks to the tasty dressings to go with it!

Things got a little messy as I tried to pour the dressing onto the salad…but I quickly redeemed myself. img_1317
