Basic Vinaigrette (with a twist)
This is a basic vinaigrette that can be adapted in numerous creative ways - add a little Worcestershire, Tabasco, fresh herbs, a flavored balsamic vinegar or a flavored oil - however the mood strikes! It uses equal proportions of balsamic vinegar to olive oil because OLIVE & VINE's vinegars have a low 4% acidity. This means you can use more vinegar and less oil - more flavor and less fat! Experiment with the proportions though because it's always a matter of personal taste.
1/4 cup Traditional Balsamic Condimento
1/4 cup OLIVE & VINE extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and fresh ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and wisk thoroughly. Use with your favorite salad greens.
