I love homemade condiments. They taste better than store bought and I can control the ingredients that I use.  If you’ve looked at the ingredients in many of your favorites condiments, you’ll probably understand why I like to make my own. When I received Homemade Condiments by Jessica Harlan, I knew that this would be a great resource to learn more.  This cookbook includes artisan recipes using fresh, natural ingredients.

Herb Infused Balsamic Vinegar Recipe over Caprese Salad

Herb Infused Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

With spring only a few days away (I hope), I know that I will be eating a lot more salads.  Nothing tastes better than fresh lettuce from my garden and adding a vinaigrette to it just makes it taste even better. This herb infused balsamic vinegar recipe can be used on your salad or even drizzled over new potatoes before you grill them.   I’m enjoying it over a caprese salad today.

Herb Infused Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

Making your own condiments is very easy and it’s a great way to avoid those preservative filled bottles on the grocery store shelves. I cannot wait to try more of the recipes in this cookbook.  Can you imagine a roasted red pepper aioli or a sweet pickle relish made from all natural ingredients? Yum!

Have you ever made your own condiments?

  2. Oh my gosh, delicious! I love balsamic so much. I'm so going to have to do this because I love having salads and creating unique flavors, but I hate the additional calories that comes with using store-bought dressings. Great idea.

  3. I make my own salad dressings, mayo, mustard, ketchup, sriracha and more.  I've even made a homemade marmite substitute.  This looks great.  Think I'll try it when I have some fresh herbs.   Which, given the VT forecast, will be quite some time :(

  5. The only condiment I have ever made is my own ranch dressing. This sounds super tasty, though, and I would love to try it!!!

    • The herb infused balsamic vinegar is definitely OK for paleo but not the mozzarella cheese in the Caprese salad.

  6. I have never made my own condiments. I could devour all of the tomatoes and cheese you've got there though.

  11. Dan loves a good vinaigrette and balsamic vinegar. Definitely pinning so we can try this. It's so hard to find a good salad dressing at the store that doesn't have a bunch of stuff we don't want in it.:)
