Excellent dressing. I halved the recipe and just put the ingredients all at one time in to a deep container and used the immersion blender. It emulsified beautifully and was actually too thick for my purposes. I added 2 TBSP of water and it pours nicely.

Wow! Kittencal, you've done it again! This is just slightly better than my standard oil and balsamic dressing. When I say just slightly better, I mean it is just slightly harder but the result is so much more dramatic. The flavor reminds me of a dressing I had at a very fancy restaurant! The only other thing I can say was that this was so good my 19 month old asked for sticks of red pepper so she could just keep eating this dressing. Anything that gets a toddler to ask for vegi's is at least deserving of 10 stars!!!!!! Thanks kittencal!!

I needed an emergency balsamic vinaigrette and I had all the ingredients on hand for this one. <br/> <br/>I put all the ingredients in a bowl at once and used an immersion blender (like K9 Owned did), and it came out fantastic! I know it says to let it chill, but we used it immediately and it was delicious and just the right texture! <br/><br/>Everyone in my family loved it. This is my new favorite dressing. <br/> <br/>Thanks so much Kittencal!
