Basic Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe


Basic Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe Recipe

This is your basic Balsamic Vinaigrette recipe. Versions of this can be found in most cookbooks. This one includes a tablespoon of demerara sugar. However, if you use good, aged Balsamic, that should be sweet enough - no added sugar needed. If you use balsamic from the grocery store, or if you substitute a traditional champagne or white wine vinegar, you will need to add the sugar.

Keep in mind that it is blasphemy to use a balsamic vinegar in a salad dressing. And especially mixing oil and balsamic together to dip your bread in.

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup good olive oil
1 tablespoon demerara sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons fresh herbs - such as thyme, parsley or basil - minced

1.Measure all ingredients into a glass jar or small bowl. Shake to combine or whisk together.

Yield: Makes about 1-1/2 cups.
