This Low FODMAP Balsamic Vinaigrette (Balsamic Salad Dressing) is a simple, low FODMAP salad dressing that comes together in less than 3 minutes and calls for pantry staple ingredients. Low FODMAP (in servings of up to 2 tablespoons), low carb, Keto, dairy-free, and gluten-free with Paleo and Whole30 options.


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar*
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon liquid stevia (optional)*


  1. Add Add all ingredients to a small glass jar or squeeze bottle (preferred for this dressing).
  2. Shake Secure lid and shake vigorously until well combined.
  3. Taste Taste and adjust seasonings and sweetener (if using) as desired.
  4. Serve and Store Serve on your favorite salads. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.* Shake to combine before reserving.


  • Servings: makes about 1/2 cup total or four, 2-tablespoon servings. I typically find just 1 tablespoon sufficient for a serving.
  • Balsamic vinegar: Monash University's Low FODMAP Diet App lists balsamic vinegar as containing the FODMAP fructose and is low FODMAP in quantities of up to 1 tablespoon or 21 grams per serving. See "Is balsamic vinegar low FODMAP?" section above for more detailed FODMAP info.
  • Liquid stevia: I find this dressing tastes best with a tiny bit of sweetener added. I use liquid stevia as it is low FODMAP and low carb/Keto, but you could use pure maple syrup if eating Paleo to taste (I’d start with ¼ teaspoon, taste, and add more if needed). Omit if eating Whole30.
  • Storage: This vinaigrette keeps best when stored at room temperature, but it should only be kept 3-4 days. I keep mine in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, but it congeals in the colder temperature. If that happens, I either remove it from the refrigerator a minimum of 10 minutes prior to serving, and then shake to recombine after it has warmed up a bit. If I need it urgently, I stick it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to liquify and shake to recombine.
