Balsamic Vinaigrette

Balsamic VinaigretteThis has got to be the most versatile dressing in the world. Vegetarians can skip the chicken broth altogether and add a squirt of lemon juice instead.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar*
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
3 tablespoons chicken broth
3/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, chicken broth, sugar, salt and pepper in a medium size bowl and whisk until well blended. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Bring to room temperature and whisk well before using. Add freshly chopped basil last.

Makes 1/2 cup.

*Or, another type of vinegar will do, as well.

Tip: Use as a dressing on mixed greens, or as a marinade for fish, chicken or pork.
