Whole30 Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Recipe – a simple 4 ingredient balsamic vinegar dressing that is sweetened naturally with date paste. Use on salads, vegetables or meat! Paleo, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free, soy free, healthy living, clean eating.

This is my go-to, back-pocket balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. It’s perfect on all types of salads. On spinach, arugula, baby greens, romaine.

It’s even great on meats as a marinade or on roasted vegetables.

It couldn’t be simpler to put together.

Whisk together high quality olive oil, aged balsamic vinegar (I get mine at Costco), dijon mustard (helps to emulsify the vinaigrette), date paste (to add a touch of natural sweetness), and seasoned with kosher salt and pepper.

I make a jar of this every Sunday to keep in my refrigerator to put on my lunch salads or cooked proteins for lunch during the week. It keeps for 2 weeks in, but it’s never lasted that long. We go through this salad dressing like crazy.

You’re going to love the delicious flavor this adds to your salads, and especially love how healthy it is. Paleo, whole30, dairy free, gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, soy free, clean eating, real food.
