Creamy Maple Balsamic VInaigrette

This Creamy Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette is my go-to creamy-style vinaigrette dressing for green salads—it is on regular rotation in my household! Ready in 5 minutes, you whip olive oil with maple balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic, and finish the dressing with chopped rosemary and thyme. Adding fresh herbs to a balsamic vinaigrette is not quite traditional, but I promise you, it's what takes this maple-balsamic vinaigrette to the next level!

  • ⅔ cup Bella Nonnas Bella's Blend Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Bella Nonnas Vermont Maple Balsamic
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped

Add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, garlic, Kosher salt and ground black pepper to a blender or use an emulsifier.  Blend until the vinaigrette is emulsified & creamy. Transfer to a jar or airtight container, then add in the fresh herbs. Shake or stir to combine. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Enjoy!
