Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Sometimes we’re so busy with the turkey and pies that we forget about the salad dressing. Instead of heading to the store, make your own balsamic vinaigrette. It’s a cinch to combine these ingredients in your Blendtec blender and keeps out chemicals and preservatives – that’s something everyone can get behind!

Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, quartered
  • 1 small squirt of dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey, optional
  • salt, pepper and basil to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to a Twister, Mini WildSide or FourSide jar and secure lid.
  2. Blend on “Batters” cycle or a Medium speed for 30 seconds.
