  • 1/2 cup high quality balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey or 2-3 tablespoons sugar, see note
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine vinegar, olive oil, honey, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a jar. Cover, shake vigorously.
  • Taste, add more salt and pepper if needed, and shake again. Cover and store tightly sealed up to 1 week.


Although I'm not a big fan of honey flavor by itself, I prefer the flavor of honey in this recipe, though white granulated sugar can also be used. I also like the slightly thicker texture you get when you use the honey!
