Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette + Immersion Blender love

Balsamic vinaigrette is one of those staple salad dressings that I like to keep in my fridge for nights where salads are on the menu. But sometimes, it can be hard to find the right dressing {or maybe I’m just picky}- one without too much sugar, one that has just the right amount of flavor without being too tart, and one that is smooth and rich without the calories! As we have talked about before, making your own dressing is an easy way to eat healthier! In comparison, a store bought brand like Brianna’s creamy balsamic dressing has 160 calories, 17gm total fat, 290 mg sodium and 5 grams sugar in just 2 Tbsp, and not to mention, added preservatives in the ingredient list. By making your own dressing at home, you know exactly what is included. My vinaigrette has a few secret ingredients, that when combined, create the perfect recipe. You can taste so much flavor without it being too overpowering. And, to get that perfect consistency – why not try using my new favorite kitchen tool, the immersion blender!
