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! The twist is that it uses equal proportions of balsamic vinegar to olive oil because OLIVE & VINE's vinegars have a low 4% - 6% acidity. This means you can use more vinegar and less oil - resulting in 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 (or any infused balsamic vinegar of your choice)

1/4 cup OLIVE & VINE extra virgin olive oil (or any infused olive oil of your choice)

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

3 cloves garlic, minced

salt and fresh ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk thoroughly. Use with your favorite salad greens.
