The Everything Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

I try to keep a few homemade dressings in the fridge at all times to simplify my day-to-day eats. This balsamic vinaigrette is one of my staples, because it tastes good with just about anything (and everything, as above). It will make a big batch and can be stored in the fridge for weeks.

Total Time: 10 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 2 (meal size)


For the Dressing:

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp dijon mustard

1/4 tsp dried Italian herbs (or basil and oregano)

1/2 tsp honey

For the Salad: Basically anything goes. Pictured above is:

4 cups red leaf lettuce

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1 cup chopped cucumber

1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced

1/2 large avocado

1/8 cup unsweetened, dried cranberries

1/8 cup pine nuts (any nuts work - especially candied pecans)

1/4 cup corn

1/4 cup crumbled feta

1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded


Combine all ingredients and blend well. Enjoy over salad fixings of your choice.
