  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • cup olive oil


  • In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients except the oil and whisk together until combined. Add the oil and whisk until the dressing is fully emulsified.
  • Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed jar for up to a week.


  • Use quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar as the taste comes from both.
  • If you want some additional flavor add a chopped shallot or ½ teaspoon dried thyme.
  • You can add all of the ingredients to a mason jar and shake to emulsify if you don't want to whisk in a bowl.
