I am in love with this easy dressing! “Make Your Own Salad” night has a new king in our house and his name is Herb Balsamic Dressing The First.
While wrangling 3 feisty kids who were hangry, I managed to make dinner and this salad dressing in under 30 minutes! If you’ve been in this stage of life, or currently are, you can appreciate just how incredible this is. I slightly expected a parade in my honor, but my kids did not seem as impressed by my dinner victory.
The dressing only took 1 minute to make from start to finish. Who says real food takes too long to make? If I had tried to make mac & cheese, it would have taken the same amount of time if not longer once I added in a protein or side dish.
Blender salad dressings are the way to go. You’ll love throwing everything in the blender and having a homemade dressing 10 seconds later!
The reason I blend this instead of mixing it is to keep the balsamic and oil incorporated together seamlessly.
You’ll notice I used a pomegranate balsamic. I wanted just a hint of fruit flavor in the dressing-and this was the perfect addition.
Since you saved yourself so much time, you might as well tell the kids dinner will be ready in 15 minutes and take some peace and quiet time. I'm not saying I've done that before, just that it's a good idea....
