New Favorite Salad Dressing

As most of you know I love making my own salad dressings. I stumbled across this one on Pinterest (I think….or maybe food gawker). I tweaked it a bit and it is delicious!

Chopped Chef Salad with Creamy Balsamic Dressing

For the Creamy Balsamic Dressing:
(makes 1 2/3 cups of dressing)
4 cloves garlic, grated
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sugar (I used honey)
1 teaspoon fresh pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup extra light olive oil (I used some fresh orange juice and a little more lemon instead of oil…but both are great! And I put fresh mint in)

For the Salad: (I didn’t follow this but it looks tasty – I used a bag of mixed greens, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, quinoa, feta, leek, boiled egg)

2-3 heads of Romaine lettuce, finely chopped
1/2 pound of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 – 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 avacado, pitted peeled and diced
1 cucumber, peeled seeded and diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 can of artichoke hearts, coarse chopped
4-6 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese

Directions:

For the Creamy Balsamic Dressing:
Whisk together garlic, mayo, lemon juice, dijon mustard, sugar, fresh pepper, salt and fresh mint until well combined. Add the balsamic vinegar and whisk well. Slowly add in the olive oil (while whisking).

For the Salad:
Add all ingredients to a large bowl (more or less of each ingredient depending on personal preferences). Toss with desired amount of dressing and serve.

Yum! So good! It’s like a homemade version of honey mustard dressing!

Love you all!
