I really wish I took a pic of this stuff on my salad yesterday, but I was too darn hungry to take a pic. Rest assured though – it is flipping delish and doing this vinaigrette is super simple – I whipped it up in about 5 minutes while I made myself my morning java.
Balsamic Vinaigrette (adapted from All Recipes)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1.5 teaspoon honey
1.5 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 cloves of garlic (or half a shallot and one clove of garlic)
salt and pepper to taste
I poured everything into a mason jar, minced up two cloves of garlic (I didn’t have shallots). Shook it all up and gave it a taste…needed more salt, pepper and honey this time around. Admittedly, I think all of this is based on your personal taste.
I served it on a bed of mixed greens with cucumber, grape tomatoes, chopped pecans, roast chicken and goat cheese. Was so delicious–esp with the goats cheese. I also think subbing the grape tomatoes for strawberries would be delish.
Give it a try the next time you want a delicious dressing on your salad!
