How To Make a Vinaigrette in 3 Easy Steps

A few reasons why you should try to make your own vinaigrette

First, if you want to reduce food waste, then, making a tiny amount of vinaigrette in a jiffy is what you’re looking for.
Of course, you can directly buy vinaigrette at your grocery store. But beware of all the additive ingredients put in the bottle.
Also, this will cost you more money than making your own vinaigrette using these few simple ingredients.

Step 1 – In a small bowl, add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and mustard.
