I love balsamic vinegar in recipes, and this is not an exception. This has a nice mixture of flavors that compliment each other wonderfully.

- Vinaigrette Preparation.
- n a mixing bowl, use a hand held electric mixer on low speed or a whisk to blend together the vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt, lemon zest, and pepper.
