Tarragon Balsamic Salad Dressing

Ready to serve in 5 minutes.

Homemade salad dressing is easy to make and its a great way to add even more freshness to a salad.

This balsamic salad dressing is quite tangy and has the wonderful flavor of tarragon.

It’s a light dressing that tastes especially delicious when served over a seafood salad or a salad topped with fish like in this recipe…”Salmon and Avocado Salad“.

The combination of the tarragon flavor with fish or seafood and fresh salad greens and ingredients tastes heavenly.

The amount of servings for this recipe depends on how many tablespoons of dressing are used per serving.

The yield is about a cup of dressing and there are 16 tablespoons to a cup.

So if there are say 3 to 4 tablespoons per serving (for a dinner salad), this recipe would serve about 4.
