I just whipped this together to pour over a marinated vegetable salad to go with a roast leg of lamb for dinner tonight. This vinaigrette is perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing!! I'm going to keep this recipe on hand.

Delicious on a baby spinach/gorgonzola/pine nut/bacon/mushroom salad. Sprinkle some pomegranate seeds too. Letting it sit is worth it, but I've been fine with a 30 min. wait in a pinch. The key is the vinegar. I use a really good quality vinegar, and a couple of tablespoons of an outstanding aged vinegar I got in Italy.
