What Does This Rosemary Balsamic Vinaigrette Taste Like?
Traditional balsamic vinaigrette is tangy and sweet, emulsified to perfection. This spin on a classic salad dressing adds fresh rosemary to the mix, which contributes a slight woodsy and peppery flavor that compliments the balsamic very well.
The rosemary is definitely not overpowering, so don’t worry about there being too much! And unlike many salad dressings, it is not too oily and it won’t weigh down the dish.
This Ninja Blender is the one that I used to make this vinaigrette, and I HIGHLY recommend it as an affordable and versatile all around blender!

How To Store Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette:
Because of the high amount of acidity in this dressing, you can store your homemade vinaigrette in an air tight container for a few months! I recommend using a mason jar with a tight lid, or an old salad dressing bottle!
Since it is emulsified so well in the blender, it shouldn’t separate (it has never separated for me), but if it does, just give the jar a good shake to mix it all together again.
