Check that baby out! My sweet husband got if for me for Christmas
The first time I used my fun new contraption, I made was balsamic vinaigrette. I've had plenty of balsamic vinaigrettes in my day, and while I like them, I've never LURVED them or anything. Well, I do now!
I don't know what it was about this dressing, maybe it was the fresh ingredients, or the fact that I got to sit and mix it myself while giggling like a nerd, but it was so delicious. Tangy, fruity, sharp. Once again, I looked forward to eating my salad because of this vinaigrette. I'm telling you, homemade is the way to go!
Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/2 olive oil (I actually probably did about 1/3 cup to lighten it up a bit)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 crushed cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and mix until well combined. Toss in salad. My favorite salad for this dressing has diced apples, cranberries, toasted almonds and diced sharp cheddar cheese. Totally delicious.
