This vinaigrette lives up to its name. It's extremely simple to make and is a great, healthy and low-calorie alternative to commercial salad dressings such as ranch or blue cheese.


  • ½ cup of Balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup of Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup of minced shallots (or substitute green onions or regular onions)


Combine all ingredients together in a container. Shake until mixed. That’s it! Good for seven days in the refrigerator.
