Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette

A good vinaigrette can turn an ordinary salad from meh to daaaaaamn that’s one fine salad.

This a deliciously flavourful vinaigrette with a touch of sweetness that compliments the balsamic vinegar and garlic perfectly.




  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


Whisk the balsamic vinegar, garlic, mustard, syrup, salt and pepper until well combined.  Whisk in the olive oil slowly, pouring in a little bit at a time. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Pour over your favourite salad.

Happy Friday.
