I love home made salad dressings. Like jarred spaghetti sauces, I don’t really care for any of them. There’s nothing like home made. And they are so easy, once you make one , you will never understand how you haven’t done it sooner!
I have always loved Creamy Balsamic dressing. One of my favorite restaurants has this dressing for their house dressing and I love it. It’s a little easier to eat due to the fact that the balsamic “splashes” a little less in a creamy form. And no matter what I do, I always ruin what ever I’m wearing with a oil based balsamic dressing!
This dressing almost has a tan color and is creamy instead of a thinner oily balsamic dressing. It is an excellent alternative to the usual balsamic dressing.
