J Dub’s Creamy Balsamic Salad Dressing is the perfect salad dressing to dress up any old boring salad.

You will make this over and over and over once your family gets a taste of this tangy, addictive dressing.

I am not a fan of sweet salad dressings.

This dressing is has just the right amount of zing and no heaviness.

My secret…….light olive oil.
