Balsamic Vinaigrette


Balsamic Vinaigrette is a classic dressing.   

I have been making this recipe for years & it is super simple.  In fact, one day, I had a couple of friends over for lunch & while we were standing in the kitchen talking, I put the ingredients for this vinaigrette in a shaker bottle & placed it on the buffet with the lunch items.  They both commented on how they couldn't believe they had just watched me mix it up so quickly & how it tasted so wonderful.   

This dressing is the perfect mix of flavors & can be used on a wide variety of items.  Often I mix a little in with tuna salad, or toss together a raw (lettuce-less) veggie salad.  It can also be heated slowly over a low heat to make a warm salad dressing.
