Recipe Story

Store-bought salad dressings simply don’t measure up to their fresher and tastier homemade counterparts. Whisking up a homemade dressing is quick, easy and gives you freedom to customize flavor notes according to your preferences. There are many homemade dressing recipes to choose from, but balsamic dressing is exceptionally versatile and works with a variety of ingredients and flavors. This creamy balsamic dressing is refreshing, tangy, a tad sweet and full of flavor that will make your taste buds sing.

Duke’s Creamy Balsamic Dressing recipe combines honey, Dijon mustard, garlic, herbs, and Duke’s Light Mayonnaise with Olive Oil with balsamic vinegar and olive oil to create a delectably creamy version of traditional balsamic vinaigrette. Duke’s Mayonnaise gives the dressing a rich, silky consistency and rounds out the pleasantly tart zing of the balsamic. Simply combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together or shake in a sealed jar or container until thoroughly blended. The dressing can be made ahead in large batches and holds up well in the fridge for up to a week.

Pairings and Suggestions

Served over salad, this creamy balsamic dressing accentuates a range of ingredients, from leafy greens to bold cheeses, from sweet, crunchy apples to earthy walnuts. What a great way to celebrate good healthy food that’s attractive and tasty. Combining sweetness with a tangy bite, this dressing also makes an excellent addition to roasted vegetable bowls or wraps. Or try as a marinade for chicken, shrimp or fish. Once you start making your own dressings with Duke’s, you’ll understand why so many people have ditched the bottle for homemade dressings.
