This healthy Dijon Vinaigrette recipe is tangy, flavorful and has no added sugar.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Tyler and I had the chance to get away for a bit last weekend. It was good to escape the snowy weather and remember that spring will be here soon. (Who expects five inches of snow the first day of spring?!?!?) After work on Friday, we road tripped through Delaware, Maryland and across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The bridge is about 24 miles worth of tunnels and bridge and makes for a fun drive.
Thankfully it was a bit warmer there and so pretty and sunny. Saturday morning we walked along the beach for a few miles and talked each other’s ears off. It’s amazing to be best friends with your spouse. In the afternoon, we headed up to Williamsburg, Virginia and enjoyed the warm weather with another walk and nonstop conversation. There is something about how leaving behind normal adult responsibilities for one day, can make us so much more energized.
I’m stopping by quickly today to give you my favorite salad dressings, this healthy dijon vinaigrette! Later this week, I’ll post one of my favorite salads to put it on (see the sneak peak above), but I wanted them to be in separate posts to make them easier to find. This dressing is a favorite because it has so much flavor, but is simple and doesn’t have the cups of sugar some salad dressings do. In fact it doesn’t have any.
- ½ cup + 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- ¼ cup finely diced onions
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper.
- Combine all ingredients into a jar with a tight fitting lid.
- Shake well. This dressing stores for about 1 week in the refridgerator.
