My Mother-in-law makes the most delicious salad dressing!
Over the years, I have loved visiting my in-laws in Georgia because I knew that I would get to eat my mother-in-law’s delicious salads.
She makes a very tasty Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing for her salads, and it has become one of my favorite dressings to make in my own home.
For many years, my husband’s Great Uncle Ward liked to make a balsamic vinaigrette for his salads that he ate every night. He was a very special and important person in the lives of my mother and father-in-law. He was an amazing man who lived 103 incredible years on this earth! It was always such a privilege to be in his presence. I am so glad my sons were able to meet him before he passed away last year.
My MIL began making Uncle Ward’s favorite balsamic vinaigrette for him whenever she fixed him dinner. My FIL suggested to add a little honey to it to make it sweeter. I am so glad he did! The sweetness is just perfect!
This dressing is super easy to make and super good to eat.
Here are the ingredients:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh Basil (not pictured)
The recipe is very simple: 2 parts olive oil to 1 part honey and balsamic vinegar.
For example, if you are making a salad for two you would use:
2 T. of extra virgin olive oil
1 T. of Honey
1 T. of balsamic vinegar
Chopped fresh basil to taste
Sometimes I make a larger salad for my family and my recipe looks like this:
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
chopped basil to taste
*I will admit that I have been known to add a few extra drops of honey. :)
This dressing tastes good on every salad. My MIL will drizzle it over mixed greens and tomatoes, and that’s it! It’s scrumptious!
Sometimes she will add feta or gorgonzala cheese, pecans, or apples. Whatever she adds….it’s always delicious!
I mixed up a salad the other day with ingredients I had in my refrigerator…
I used spinach, tomatoes, grapes, apples, feta cheese, and my favorite…toasted almonds!
Is there anything more delicious than toasted almonds? Seriously?
I toasted them in a skillet with a little butter and salt…Oh My Goodness! They are like candy to me!
I drizzled some of my MIL’s delicious Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing on top, and ladies, it was to die for!
I gobbled up every bite!
