Balsamic vinaigrette

Once you understand how vinaigrettes are made, its very simple to create your own vinaigrette recipes, like I created this one and its simply delicious!! :) Key is the acid should be half quantity of the extra virgin olive oil, and you can use any acid you want, like lemon, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, white wine vinegar or red wine vinegar.

1/4 cup good balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup good extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoon honey
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 teaspoon pepper
salt to taste


In a blender, put the balsamic vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and finely chopped garlic and blend it until well blended. Slowly add the extra virgin olive oil while blender is on, and make sure its completed blended.

Make any salad you like with this dressing. Its so good!
