This easy balsamic vinaigrette is the perfect go-to dressing for all of your salad needs. Plus, it takes only a couple of minutes to prepare!


  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • Fresh-ground pepper


  1. Add all of the ingredients into a sealable jar. 
  2. Cover the jar tightly with a lid and then shake vigorously until everything is combined. 
  3. Serve over your favorite salad and enjoy. 


  • This dressing is best if used the day it is made.
  • Store in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. Keep in mind that the olive oil will solidify so I suggest leaving it  out to come to room temperature/to loosen up before using you will need to warm it before mixing it and using it.
  • The key to taking your balsamic vinaigrette to the next level is using high-quality ingredients. We recommend high-quality EVOO and balsamic vinegar if possible.
