I love this dressing. Christopher does too. In fact, he’s looking forward to when I make it again.

I’ll be making it tonight. I’m a sucker for a cute face.

That’s why I don’t make bigger batches.

I like making fresh dressing, especially for my honey.

How to make this vinaigrette dressing

All that’s in this lovely dressing is balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, dijon mustard, maple syrup and salt and pepper.

That’s it!

I grab a big mixing bowl. I find it’s best when I use my shallow stainless steel mixing bowl.

I add all the ingredients together in the bowl.

I take my handy dandy whisk and whisk the heck out of the ingredients. The thing I really love is how thick the liquid gets. It emulsifies!

I love that word.

Emulsion, emulsifier, emulsifies!

After I whisk the heck out of the ingredients, I pour them into a little jar.

Such a small batch that you eat it way before it goes bad. Even if you doubled this, it won’t go bad. Just stick it in the fridge.
