    Balsamic Vinaigrette



    1. 1
      to Make Vinaigrette:.
    2. 2
      In medium bowl whisk all the ingredients except the oil until mixed. Gradually whisk in the oil until smooth.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, cover the onion with iced water and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain well. (Soaking the onion removes the sharp bit).
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, place the lettuce, drained onions, tomato and cucumber and add the dressing a little at a time, tossing gently and thoroughly until all the vegetables are evenly coated. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Serve immediately on chilled salad plates.

      This dressing is good but I changed it a little and made it GREAT for our tastes. 3/4 cup olive oil is too much for us tastes so I only put in 1/2 a cup. I added more salt and pepper than it says. I could have done without the brown sugar but I added it because my wife likes things a little sweet. I also added more garlic but we are garlic lovers. We served it over a plain salad of mixed greens with grilled chicken and it was awesome.

      This was a really nice salad. DH and I made it for lunch today. DH said he wished the vinaigrette had just a little more zing to it and he could not taste the balsamic and the garlic too much. I think it will be just a matter of playing around with the proportions of ingredients to suit our taste. All in all, we enjoyed our lunch. Thanks!
