Entered for safekeeping. Why pay $ for Wegman's vinegar spritzers to spray on a salad when you can make your own? Found this recipe by deliathecrone. Buy a very fine balsamic vinegar, it is a treat that needs no oil to be enjoyed. Lucini Gran Riserva Balsamico for $14 for 8 oz. is recommended by Cook's Illustrated. Villa Manodori Balsamic at $35/8.5 oz. is also recommended. Avoid Pompeian, but Star or Progresso might suit you among the inexpensive brands. You will taste the difference in quality. Preparation time does not include sitting time of 1 hour or more.
