Basic Balsamic Vinaigrette

BASIC BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE

What you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup Vinesation Extra Virgin Olive Oil (fused or infused)
  • 1/4cup Vinesation Balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and ground white pepper (or ground black pepper), to taste

How to make it:

  • Place all the ingredients in a glass jar, tighten the lid and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds or until fully combined.
  • Let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature to let the flavors meld. Give the dressing  a good whisk immediately before serving.

Notes:

  • A teaspoon of honey or mustard will not only add flavor, it will also help stabilize the emulsion, so the dressing won't separate as quickly. A squeeze of citrus, like lemon, lime orange (try blood orange sometime) is also a nice addition. Just be sure to taste and adjust as you go. A good way to taste is by dipping a piece of lettuce, rather than tasting the dressing on its own.
  • You can also add freshly ground or chopped herbs as well.  Basil is a favorite
  • Finely chopped shallots or garlic are a great addition as well.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use (about a week)
