It’s tangy, slightly sweet and super creamy thanks to the added Greek yogurt. It’s also pretty mild, which makes it super versatile.
Once you start making homemade dressing, I promise you won’t want to go back to store-bought. They’re so easy and super inexpensive!
Plus, store-bought dressings are usually filled with unnecessary ingredients like cheap oils, added sugar and preservatives.
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 monkfruit for a zero-sugar option!
garlic powder – this is just for extra flavor. Feel free to use fresh garlic (maybe 1 cloves) or dried garlic granules if you’d like.
salt and pepper – necessary for balancing the flavors!
How to Make Creamy Balsamic Dressing
Ready for the simplest instructions ever?
Simply whisk all ingredients in a bowl until the dressing is combined and smooth. If you want to take a shortcut (or want to make sure the dressing is extra creamy) mix in a blender or use an immersion blender. Easy peasy!
This dressing keeps great! After whisking the dressing together, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. I love using small mason jars for storing my dressings.
If any separation occurs during storage, simply shake, whisk or blend for a few seconds before serving.
What is Creamy Balsamic Good On?
Everything! Kidding… kind of.
This creamy balsamic dressing is a great staple recipe to have around! It’s delicious on just about any salad recipe. I originally created it to go with my spinach salad, but I also love drizzling it on roasted vegetables or grain bowls.
