Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette

Why get store-bought dressing when you can make this in just 5 minutes right at home? It doesn’t get easier (or cheaper) than that!

As we walked Butters during our usual night walks, he swallowed what seemed to be a peach pit right off the ground. It was around 10PM and we were 99.9% sure he had swallowed it, and because peach pits contain cyanide, we didn’t want to take any chances so we immediately rushed him to the 24-hr pet hospital in literally 12 minutes. It was a very eventful, anxiety-ridden night as we sat in the hospital waiting room but I am happy to report back that the pit has been recovered and Butters is back to his normal self.

So after staying up all night, I had absolutely no energy to cook up anything at the house. But when I saw a bottle of balsamic vinegar and some greens in the fridge, I decided to finally stock up on homemade balsamic vinaigrette – my all-time favorite dressing. It’s super easy to whip up in just 5 minutes, and requires ingredients that you already have on hand. Plus, you know the homemade version always tastes better!

Best of all, this pint of dressing will keep for at least 2 weeks, making it perfect for those busy weeknights when you don’t have a single minute to spare for dinnertime. All you have to do is toss up some mixed greens, throw in your favorite veggies and call it dinner!
