2 Ingredient Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • Author: Get Inspired Everyday!
  • Prep Time: 2 mins
  • Total Time: 2 mins
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


  • 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


  1. 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.
  2. Then add the sea salt to the vinegar to help dissolve it.
  3. Pour the olive oil over the top to reach the 1 cup mark on the side of the jar.
  4. Place a lid securely over the top and shake the vinaigrette vigorously to emulsify it.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
