How to Make Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe

Tonight I was working on a pasta recipe that called for some balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Unfortunately I didn’t have any in the house, so I went searching on the web to find a good, quick and easy balsamic vinaigrette dressing that I could make to add to my recipe.

I came across quite a few recipes, but since I was looking for an easy one, the following recipe really appealed to me.

Here are the directions and ingredients I used to make my Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing:


  • 1/2 a Shallot
  • 1/3 cup (75ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 2/3 cup (150ml) Olive Oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lemon juice

Because I only needed 1/2 a cup of salad dressing I halved all the ingredients.

Dice the shallot and add it to your mixing bowl

Add your balsamic vinegar

Add a pinch of salt and your black pepper

Drizzle in your oil, while you whisk.

After you whisk it for a while you will want to check the taste. Season it to taste with your salt and pepper and then at the end add a squeeze of lemon juice to give the balsamic vinaigrette dressing a bit of a zing.
