My favorite dressing to make! Great taste. I usually mix with baby greens, pecans and goat cheese. AWESOME!

Simple vinaigrette - followed the recipe. Really, very good. I'm going to serve it over spinach salad with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Sometimes the simple things are the best things.

Excellent basic balsamic vinaigrette. I made the recipe exactly as stated, but my virgin olive oil was slightly too "intense" in flavour, and I whisked in a little water (maybe 3 tablespoons). I have wonderful garlic chives which I used in the photo, but didn't want to add it to the dressing, as that would mean the dressing might not keep well, and there's quite a lot left for the two of us. The garlic chives was snipped and used on our greens-tomatoes-sweet-onion salad. The vinaigrette thickened beautifully with whisking. Thanks!!
