Arguably the best part of this recipe is the dressing. It's a classic balsamic vinaigrette that just tastes so much better when it's homemade. Plus the recipe makes *a lot* of dressing, so you can really coat your salad in it if that's your preference.
Here's a few popular substitutions and additions to this recipe:
- Pecans: walnuts are a popular swap for this recipe.
- Red onions: PRO TIP — soak these in cold water for about 10 minutes to take the 'bite' out of them.
- Balsamic vinegar: depending on the brand/quality of your balsamic vinegar, you may want to adjust the amount of honey and mustard that you add to your dressing. Taste your dressing once made and adjust accordingly.
