Any good salad needs a good salad dressing. This balsamic vinegar salad dressing is so diverse and works well with so many different types of dressings. the mustard helps to thicken it just a little bit and adds a burst to the flavor. It keeps at room temperature for 5-7 days (don’t store in the refrigerator, as the olive oil will harden).
