Light and flavorful, this vinaigrette in another favorite of ours. We visited the CIA in Greystone a few years back and they used it to dress greens and served them in a parmesan bowl like the one in Parmesan Basket. What a wonderful combination!

I love that the balsamic was the main ingredient in this dressing. It was exactly what I was looking for -- simple is definitely best when it comes to dressings, and this just proves it.

This is so simple, and so delicious! I used a balsamic vinaigrette that came from an Italian market. I love the oregano (I used dried); it makes you think, "Hey, what's making this vinaigrette so good?" I will definitely make this again.
