Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (Vegan)

Similar to my Dill Pickle Snack Mix recipe, I found out about this Honey-Sriracha Chex Mix recipe and just had to develop a variation I could try because it sounded so, so good! This one is even easier to create gluten and dairy free than my dill pickle snack mix and I highly recommend it. It’s quite addicting with that sweet, salty, spicy thing going on. It really hits the spot. Perfect for a book club or girls night or a game day party, what have you!
