With just 4 ingredients and a few minutes, this slightly sweet, yet tangy dressing is ready for any salad! We especially love it on salads that include fruit, chicken, and fish.

Making this dressing only takes a few minutes and since I use pantry staple ingredients, it is one that I can easily whip up any time!
How to Make Homemade White Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
Ingredients you’ll need.
Olive Oil – Your favorite olive oil works perfectly in this dressing. I used a lighter olive oil in this dressing than what I normally use in my cooking, so feel free to experiment as well!
White Balsamic Vinegar – The key difference between white balsamic vinaigrette and balsamic vinaigrette is the color. While I love balsamic vinaigrette, using a white balsamic allows the dressing to have a lighter color, lighter flavor, and it doesn’t not color your salad.
Stone House Seasoning – This is our favorite seasoning blend that I have used for years and years. It is a simple blend of salt, pepper and garlic that I keep on hand when I am cooking to quickly add flavor to recipes.
Sweetener – You can use your favorite non-refrigerated sweetener in this recipe: honey, brown sugar, agave, cane sugar.
To make the white balsamic dressing, I simply add all of the ingredients to a Mason jar, screw the lid on tightly and shake it vigorously to combine. You can also whisk all of the ingredients together using a whisk or quickly blend together with a blender.
Does This Balsamic Dressing Need to Be Refrigerated?
NO! One of the main reasons that I use the ingredients that I use for my dressing is that it does not require refrigeration. None of the individual ingredients in this dressing require refrigeration and the resulting dressing when mixed does not require it either, making this a great dressing to mix together and keep on the counter, take to picnics throughout the warmer months, and store in the pantry for quick meals!
If you substitute any of the ingredients listed in this recipe with other ingredients that do require refrigeration, then your dressing will of course need to be refrigerated. Also, if you use fresh garlic or shallots in place of the Stone House Seasoning called for in the recipe, your dressing will require refrigeration as well.
How Long Does the Dressing Last?
This dressing will last for months when stored in an airtight container out of direct heat and sunlight. As you are serving your dressing, make certain that it is poured out of the container and nothing is dipped into the dressing that could contaminate it and your dressing should keep well.
Again, if you substitute any of the ingredients listed in this recipe with other ingredients that do require refrigeration, then your dressing will not last as long. Also, if you use fresh garlic or shallots in place of the Stone House Seasoning called for in the recipe, your dressing will last up to 3 days.
