Simple healthy vinaigrette dressing recipe

While I was traipsing around the Big Apple, someone made a homemade balsamic that was to die for, so I decided to try it for myself and it turned out pretty yummy.

I found a basic recipe with ingredients I had in my kitchen already:
For my yeastfreers - you can replace the balsamic with apple cider vinegar, the dijon mustard with mustard powder and the sugar with stevia

3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 vinegar
1 tablespoon garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
About 1 tablespoon of sugar {depends on how sweet you like yours}
 
But this is secret ingredient...I felt this recipe needed something extra so I added about a tablespoon {you can start with less and add to taste}

The pre-shake look

 I'm all shook up
 
Play around with different spices --- in this batch I added a little ginger, dill and thyme
GET CREATIVE!
 
And that's it --- super simple and super yummy on just about anything! 
Oh and I guess it's healthy too ;)
