Balsamic Vinaigrette

I made this vinaigrette the first time I did 21 Day Fix.  I didn’t really understand why the recipe was in the meal plan book.  I just did it and ate it because it was REALLY GOOD!

We watched Fed Up a few weeks ago were amazed at how much, and how often, sugar is added into foods.  But it wasn’t until I looked at the back of a bottle of salad dressing that it hit me. Even the expensive refrigerated dressings have added sugar.It is everywhere.

I was clueless.  I even asked random customers at the store and employees if they knew there was sugar in ALL the salad dressings.  It had me dumbfounded.  

I don’t mean to get on a soap box, but we have NO excuse to be naive.  Information surrounds us.  We don’t even have to type the question into google anymore.  Siri will do that for us.  You are worth it.

You are worth the 3 minutes it takes to make this dressing.

You are worth the extra $2 to get a bottle of marinara that does not have added sugar.

You are worth it.

Just do it.

Ingredients:Balsamic Vingerette
6 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
6 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 medium lemon (juiced)
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. raw honey

Directions:
Combine vinegar, lemon juice and honey in a bowl and whisk to blend.
Stir in mustard, mix well.
Slowly add oil while whisking and mix well.

Ta-Da!!!

Feel free to add little goodies like scallions, thyme, oregano and other herbs.

We leave ours on the table because we use it throughout the week.  You can store it in the fridge as well, just know that you will have to set it out at room temperature then mix well again.
