Classic Balsamic Vinaigrette


Balsamic Vinegar is one of my favorite flavors. Using this delicious Classic Balsamic Vinaigrette on a salad is better than any store bought salad dressing, it costs just pennies and only takes a couple minutes to prepare. It can also be used as a marinade.

  1. This is something I need to experiment more with. It’s such a powerful flavor. I have narrowed it down to my favorite being from Trader Joes…of course might be because I like the bottle!
