Balsamic Dijon Salad Dressing

On Gundry, a lot of your lunches and some dinner side dishes will likely be salads. Lettuces are a great way to get bulk and nutrients into your diet. But what about dressing? Most store-bought dressings have sugar or other foods that are off the list. I think the easiest solution is to make your own dressing at home.
Make dressing in bulk and keep it in a jar or tupperware in the fridge. As you can see, I keep mine in an old olive jar.

1 Cup extra virgin olive oil
8 Tbsps. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
1/4 Cup water
Salt & pepper to taste

Pour all ingredients into a jar or tupperware with a good lid and shake to mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Store in the fridge. Because of the oil, the dressing will congeal slightly in the fridge. When you plan to use it, set it out for a few minutes while preparing your salad and shake well before use. If desired, add a little water to thin.
