Balsamic Vinaigrette

Balsamic Vinaigrette


"This is a tangy vinaigrette--wonderful on mixed greens, tomato, onion and cucumber salads. It's also good if used sparingly over steamed veggies or stir-frys. Sometimes I use traditional balsamic vinegar. However, this will produce a slightly sweeter vinaigrette."

This has become a staple vinaigrette for me. I use double the garlic, and it has a nice kick. I usually make double and store it for about a week in the fridge. Thanks Gary!

Good and easy. I added more garlic.

Delicious! I poured this over steamed asparagus, then chilled it in the fridge for 2 hours. Quick, easy, and very tasty!

Great recipe! Next time around I added tsp of sugar, 1/2 part heavy orange juice and a couple mandarian slices and blended well.
