Garlic Vinaigrette

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Penny Stettinius

Long ago, before I could just throw a vinaigrette together, I started with this recipe. It's called The Best Vinaigrette Dressing in the Celebrations on The Bayou cookbook, put out by the Junior League of Monroe, Louisiana. The recipe calls for white wine vinegar but you can use either red or white wine or champagne vinegars. And, it's delicious with Feta crumbled over your green salad. 7/2013: Added a tweak of a little agave or honey to soften the taste.

This was a very tasty dressing. I cut the recipe in half used 2 cloves of garlic (we love garlic) and added a touch of sugar and some parmesan cheese. Wonderful. DH gobbled his down on a green salad and said this was one of the best he had. Thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013.
