Nutrition and Calorie in Balsamic Vinaigrette

Most balsamic vinaigrette recipes are packed full of calories and fat. The recipes are typically 50% or more oil… But not ours.

Some low calorie balsamic vinegar dressings cut the oil, and also cut the serving size to make the dressing low in calories. They are delicious, but we were able to cut the calories even more, and increase the serving size to 2.5 tablespoons (over an ounce of salad dressing).
