My New Favoite Salad Dressing

I made a homemade salad dressing the other week for a dinner party and it was too good not to share.

Seriously. Too. Good.

Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1/4 c balsamic vinegar
  • 2 t dark brown sugar, optional*
  • 1 T chopped garlic
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 c olive oil

Beat the vinegar in a bowl with the optional sugar, garlic, salt and pepper until sugar and salt dissolves. Then beat in the oil by droplets, whisking constantly. (Or place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake to combine.) Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Now, make yourself happy and pour a bit of this over spring greens, dried cranberries and toasted walnuts. Even better, add a dollop of chevre.
