I've been meaning to post my favorite balsamic vinaigrette for a while now. I used it for my Hearty Summer Salad last year and again with my recent Steak Salad recipe. So, the recipe is hiding within two recipes on my website. I decided it was time for balsamic vinaigrette to have its moment in the sun.
Are you super picky about your salad dressing?
I have always been a little Miss Picky Pants when it comes to salad dressing. I'm sure I mentioned this in another post on my website. I very rarely buy bottled salad dressing and if I don't have time to make it, I opt for plain, old olive oil and balsamic vinegar. However, I always have the ingredients on hand to make my favorite balsamic vinaigrette. Always. And you probably do too.
Balsamic Vinaigrette is Easy to make and cheap
The thing is - balsamic vinaigrette tastes great on just about every salad out there. Store-bought salad dressings tend to linger in the refrigerator, right? They get crusty around the spout. The bottles accumulate like a little army on the refrigerator door. Most you don't want anymore because you tried it on a whim and didn't like it, but refuse to throw it away. When you prepare homemade salad dressing, you make what you need for a week or two. When you're finished, you make a fresh batch. So, why not give it a whirl?
I encourage all of you to get to your kitchens and make delicious food and salad dressing. When we come together with our loved ones and share a meal, it gives us the opportunity to connect and communicate. It's a time to share our days and our lives with each other in a meaningful way. We talk. We laugh. We love.Print
