2 Ingredient Balsamic Vinaigrette


This simplest and tastiest balsamic vinaigrette that will take your salads to the next level. Try some of the different variations as well for endless flavor options.



1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 Teaspoon sea salt

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Optional add-ins:

Dijon mustard

freshly chopped herbs

minced garlic

minced shallot

freshly grated parmesan

freshly ground black pepper

Flavored olive oils and or vinegars also make good variations


If you’re using a mason jar you won’t need measuring cups. Pour the vinegar to the 2 ounce mark on the side of a pint jar.

Then add the sea salt to the vinegar to help dissolve it.

Pour the olive oil over the top to reach the 1 cup mark on the side of the jar.

Place a lid securely over the top and shake the vinaigrette vigorously to emulsify it.

This dressing will keep for at least 1 week in the refrigerator. If you decide to use any add-ins, the dressing is best used right away.

I like to use the white plastic lids you can get for mason jars because the vinegar has a tendency to react with the metal lids causing an off flavor in the dressing nearest the lid.


A recipe is only as good as the sum of it’s parts, so try to use the best quality vinegar and olive oil you can find!
