Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

Salad next to The Garlic Chop and Peel with garlic balsamic vinaigrette

This balsamic vinaigrette using raw garlic is a delicious salad dressing. I double or triple this recipe and keep it in the fridge for the week to make salad prep easier. Use with spring greens or baby spinach, add berries or an apple shredded and add some nuts and seeds for added crunch and nutrition - the secret to a great salad!


1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 shallot minced with Garlic Chop
1 garlic clove minced with Garlic Chop
salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine all in a glass jar with a lid.
  • Tighten lid on and shake vigorously until thoroughly combined.
  • Store in the refrigerator for a week.
  • You'll find that the oil hardens, just take out 15 minutes prior to dressing your salad.
