Store bought salad dressing is awful, expensive, and typically loaded with preservatives. Considering that you can make this quick recipe at home in three minutes, using only a few ingredients from a standard Pantry Essentials Checklist, this is one staple to make weekly. By using a Pampered Chef Measure, Mix, & Pour® the dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Many families like to make it each Friday night while prepping for the family's pizza night.
Versions of this kid-friendly recipe for Balsamic Vinaigrette are only limited by a Mom's imagination. Keep four or five different types of vinegar and mustard in the refrigerator at all times, add a little seasoning, and oil, and the possibilities are endless.
