Balsamic & Mustard Vinaigrette

Time to prepare: 5 minutes
Very Easy
Bowl and whisk/fork or a jar with lid
Dish origin:
(French cuisine?)

  • 1 tbsp mustard powder or mustard sauce
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup oil (olive oil, seed oil, or any other oil with milder taste; e.g. i wouldn't use coconut oil)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)


  • 1 tbsp of liquid sweetener (Agave/Maple/Corn syrup, Date paste, Apple honey or bee's honey)
  • garlic powder
  • any other spice of your choice

The formal route: Add all the ingredients to a bowl, except for the oil, and whisk until the mix looks homogeneous. Add the oil slowly while whisking until the mixture turns into a homogeneous sauce or paste depending on the amounts of mustard used. Pour the finished vinaigrette into a container. You can store it in a closed container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

The quick route: Alternatively just pour everything in a jar, close well and shack until homogeneous :P the simplest low-tech shaker that works wonders and delivers every time 👌
