My homemade "Organic" Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Recipe

My easy homemade salad dressing is healthy, delicious, and more economical than NEWMAN'S OWN  Extra Virgin Olive Oil Balsamic Vinaigrette.  This dressing has canola oil, soybean oil, and vegetable oil in the ingredients, which are known to be unhealthy.  It also contains sulfites and xanthan gum for thickening, (which in small amounts won't harm you), but you don't need thickeners for my dressing.

 Organic Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp.  Organic chopped garlic  ( or you can use chopped shallots)
1/3 cup Organic balsamic vinegar
3 tsp honey (either homegrown or raw honey)
3/4 cups Organic extra virgin olive oil

In medium bowl , mix the first 4 ingredients together, and whisk in the olive oil.

Pour dressing mixture into a clean salad dressing bottle by using a funnel.  Shake closed bottle WELL.  I used the type of salad dressing bottle that has a stopper under the cap...which is easily removable so you can use this bottle again.  Use approx. an 8 oz bottle, or larger depending on if you want to double the recipe.

Pour dressing over salad and toss lightly to coat.

No refrigeration is necessary.  Store in your kitchen cupboard.
