Ingredients Needed:

 

  • balsamic vinegar—grab a good, high quality balsamic. It will give your homemade dressings such amazing flavor.

  • olive oil – I like extra virgin olive oil for salad dressings.

 

  • Plain Greek yogurt – I recommend full fat Greek yogurt, but you can use low-fat or non-fat if needed. You can also use dairy-free yogurt to make this dairy-free and vegan.

  • Dijon mustard – the flavor of dijon is great in the dressing, but another mustard, like stone-ground mustard, will also work.

 

  • honey—just a touch for a hint of sweetness! You could swap for maple syrup to make this vegan, or use stevia or monk fruit for a zero-sugar option!

  • garlic powder—this is just for extra flavor. Feel free to use fresh garlic (maybe 1 clove) or dried garlic granules if you’d like.

 

  • salt and pepper—necessary for balancing the flavors!
