This fresh spring mix salad signals spring to me! The homemade balsamic vinaigrette is a healthy choice. Homemade dressings are easier, cheaper and so much better for you! The first recipe is the dressing. Salad ingredients are listed in the Notes section.
  • 3 Tbsp safflower oil or good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Modena Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbsp filtered water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  1. Place all ingredients into a small jelly jar (canning jar). Anything with a lid works well.
  2. Shake to mix thoroughly. Stores in fridge for 1-2 weeks.
  3. This amount is enough for me to have 3-4 large salads. I like my salads large as they are more filling.
*Spring Mix Salad ~ Organic spring mix, 1 organic apple, diced 1-2 Tbsp red onion, diced, Handful raw sunflower seeds, Handful organic raisins 2-3 tsp homemade balsamic vinaigrette *To assemble salad ~ I place everything in a large Tupperware bowl, put on the lid and shake to coat all lettuce with the dressing. Then serve on plate or in a salad bowl.
