It’s SO simple to make your own Whole30 Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing! Only 4 ingredients and it’s healthy, tangy, and delicious!
I know, I know. This recipe is S-I-M-P-L-E.
Which is why I wanted to share it with you. Sometimes you don’t need:
- fancy salads loaded with crazy flavors like the miso lemon tahini dressing
- To spend money on super easy products that you can make at home with less ingredients, healthy and cheaper! See also: the yummiest homemade strawberry vinaigrette!
And this little number is ticking BOTH those boxes.
It’s easy. It’s tangy. It’s zippy and it goes great on salads, bowls or with crusty bread dipped into it! 😍

What is Whole30?
Whole30 is an eating plan that many people adopt for a month to achieve a bit of a “reset” when it comes to food. Whole30 is a one month eating program than can help you lose weight, improve your relationship with food, and improve your long-term health. It involves eating only whole foods and eliminates grains, added sugars, legumes and alcohol for the month.

I make all my own dressings, and they can be as fancy and funky as you want, or as simple and classic. This dressing is one of my faves because it goes with everything! It also stores and lasts really well when kept in the fridge. I recommend storing it in an airtight container, such as a mason jar or old salad dressing bottle. It will last for up to a couple of weeks!
