  2. Serve atop your favorite salad, with veggies, as a marinade or topping for chicken and fish, or drizzled on a sandwich. The possibilities are truly endless.

At home, we would swap out the white (or tarragon) vinegar for balsamic in our Good Seasons Italian dressing. It made eating salads fun, and something that I looked forward to night after night.

Enter in food sensitivities and out went the Good Seasons (and any other bottled salad dressing).

I was forced to try my hand at making my own dressings. Sadly, every single recipe out there for balsamic vinaigrette calls for mustard as an emulsifier (the glue that holds it all together). 


  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbs almond butter (or another nut butter of your choice)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ pepper
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ⅔ cup oil
