  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, dijon mustard, garlic and dark brown sugar in a mason jar. Season with a large pinch of kosher salt and several turns of freshly ground black pepper. Screw on the top of the jar and shake to combine.
