Good Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

"Many requests for this recipe; and it's so easy. It was served at my baby shower 2 years ago and that old ordinary tossed salad is still raved about."

Ready In:


  • 1 (5/8 ounce) package Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix
  • balsamic vinegar
  • cider vinegar
  • oil
  • water
  • Good Seasons dressing cruet


  • Follow the directions instructed on the back of the dry dressing mix package with the following adjustment: Instead of adding all regular vinegar to the "V" line on the cruet, add 1/2 cider vinegar and 1/2 balsamic vinegar.
  • Tastes great on greens!
  • I think it tastes it's best at room temp; so it would probably last that way for a few days; after then if it's not used, throw it in the fridge.

    This is a very good basic recipe. I have been making it like this for a while now and decided one day to spice it up a bit. I added approx. two tsps of sugar and a tbls or so of good dijon mustard. This recipe has now become my favorite salad dressing. My picky kids now request it for every salad we have. Also great as a marinade for chicken breasts on the grill.

    Good change from the original dressing packet recipe. We liked the 2 different vinegars.

    Very good. I ran out of Newman's Own Balsamic vinaigrette and was in a pinch. This fit the bill. Thanks for posting dancing Chef.


Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
