A dear friend of mine gifted me a wonderful bottle of balsamic vinaigrette a few weeks back, and oh man is that stuff delicious. I’ve been using it in all kinds of different ways, but my favorite is homemade salad dressing. Can you hear me smacking my lips? It’s divine.
Recently, I’ve been making a delicious salad with baby greens, roasted winter vegetables (carrots, squash, onions and cauliflower), cashews, roasted chicken and a sprinkle of feta cheese. You guys, you gotta get on this train! It’s so good.
Anyway, I thought you might want the recipe for the dressing below. I promise, you’ll thank me.
Amazing Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (use the good stuff!)
2 tbsp dijon mustard (my very favorite is from Kramarczuk’s and is the best stuff ever)
1/2 tbsp salt
pepper to taste
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp minced garlic
pinch of sugar
1 tbsp mayonaise (optional)
…Are there instructions? I just whisk it all together (except the olive oil) and then keep stirring while slowly adding the oil. And voila!
Try not to drink it straight.
