Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe (by Forks Over Knives)


  • 1/2 Cup Aged Balsamic Vinegar (High Quality Preferred)
  • 3 Tbsp Low Sodium Tamari
  • 3 Tbsp Date Paste or Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Tbsp Onion Granules
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast (Optional)
  • Fresh Herbs of Choice (Rosemary, Oregano, Chives), Minced
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste


First, gather and prepare your mise en place, including making the fruit paste (I have included a link to the mango fruit paste I made; you’ll just sub in dates for this recipe); alternatively, you could use another sweetener of choice ((like your smile)).

In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together well. Or, if using a container such as a jar, pour all ingredients into the container, close with a lid, and shake vigorously.

Note: This versatile dressing and/or marinade can be made in advance, allowing the flavors to meld together.
