Yummy! I cut the recipe in half and used a very good (expensive) balsamic vinegar. It was wonderful. If you use the less expensive brands you should reduce the vinegar in half to get a nice thick syrupy result. I loved the addition of the mustard. Thanks for posting. :)
This dressing is great but there is too much balsamic vinegar. Next time I'll use 1/8 cup instead. I used grainy mustard. Thanks Lainey :) made for PRMR tag game
This was good, but a bit to much vinegar for me.
Wonderful dressing! I love how whisking the ingredients made it smooth and thick. I made a couple of changes based on our preferences: I used light olive oil instead of extra-virgin, and I subbed red wine vinegar for 1/2 of the balsamic because I don't like a strong balsamic flavor. It was perfect for us that way. I also decided to sprinkle the toasted pecans on top of our salad instead of mixing into the dressing, because I knew I'd have some leftovers and wondered if the nuts might get soggy after being in the fridge. This is a great fall dressing- I served on romaine with blue cheese crumbles and the pecans, and it would also be good with goat cheese, and with fruits added such as pears, apples & dried cranberries. It's a keeper for me.
This is an outstanding dressing that is a perfect blending of flavors. I used a very grainy Dijon and love the added texture. It does end up being thick but I really liked that, it was easy to scoop the pecans onto the fork along with the salad bites. It's very easy to make and so good that you could almost eat it with a spoon all by it's self. Made For Photo Tag.
