balsamic vinaigrette salad

With all the cooking that I do, most of the time it’s the simple things that I love the most. This balsamic vinaigrette salad is one of my easy favorites that I typically make at least once a week. I rarely purchase premade salad dressings (with the exception of Annie’s Shitake & Sesame Dressing…holy cow that’s a good one) because they’re so easy to make at home and the taste is just so much better.

I love this balsamic vinaigrette salad because it can be an easy side or a main dish by adding some quick grilled chicken. And the dressing itself is a tad on the sweet side so my girls gobble it up like it’s a dessert. And I’m typically not a huge salad eater but this one just rocks my world!

If you’re a blue cheese lover, definitely add some crumbles to it. And cherry tomatoes are perfect here, too, along with some thinly sliced red onion. But the options are endless – just add your favorites and make it your own!

    Balsamic vinaigrette salad is sort of a staple in my household when it comes to salads and fairly nutritional dishes in general. So much of it speaks to my Italian heritage, it just goes well with a lot of hardy pastas and carbohydrate based dishes. It is great that you put this recipe up though, especially for those unfamiliar with this salad!
