The other day I made my salad for lunch and I went to grab the bottle of balsamic vinaigrette and it was completely empty! My kids have a terrible habit of putting empty bottles, milk cartons, and butter dishes back into the fridge and then I don’t know until the last minute that I am out of something.
Because I didn’t have time to run to the store and I had all the ingredients, I decided to make my own dressing. I’m so sorry that I never tried this before. The dressing was amazing. So much better than anything you could buy in the grocery store. And it only took a few minutes to make!
Try this on my Copycat Chick-fil-A Grilled Market Salad. YUM!!Print
