I love fresh, crisp, simple green salads, especially with delicious and simple balsamic herb dressing. Easy, convenient, nutritious, what’s not to love about it! I cannot remember when was the last time I bought pre-made salad dressing (many years ago)! Once in a while, I might buy some organic Caesar dressing if I feel lazy, but on a regular basis, I always make my own, it’s inexpensive, much healthier and only takes a few minutes to make.
Here’s a classic recipe that I love making, especially in the summer. It goes well with green salads but also with pasta salads, bean salads, drizzled over a vegan sandwich, etc. even on top of meats (if you eat meat)!
Herbes de Provence salad dressing
You'll never want to buy another store-bought dressing with this simple balsamic herb dressing recipe! Only 4 ingredients and ready in just a few minutes!
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp Herbes de Provence mix
- 1/2 tsp unrefined sea salt (grey, fine)
- Put all the ingredients in a Mason jar, close the lid tight and shake well for 5-10 seconds. Enjoy!
- It does taste better if you wait at least 10-15 min before using (and even better the next day).
- Shake well before using.
This should give you enough for a few large salads, perfect for a whole week.
