Our Favorite Salad Dressing

We love adding fresh salad greens to our meals and have recently found a homemade salad dressing that we all enjoy. If you have young children, you understand what a miracle that is to find something that everyone agrees on!

We like to use fresh baby greens. The darker the leaf, the healthier it is. We also use grape tomatoes, halved, and slice English cucumbers when we have them on hand.

The kids help me make this dressing because I use every opportunity I can to have them help in the kitchen and learn valuable life skills.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Honey
Minced Garlic to taste
1/2 C Olive Oil

Whisk together and pour over your favorite greens.

We would love for you to link us to your favorite salad dressing recipes, too!
