A Salad Dressing to Remember: Balsamic and Oil Try Something New
This recipe is as easy as shaking up some ingredients, and pouring over a bowl of lettuce. Of course, you can jazz up the salad in lots of ways, but at it's heart, this one is quick and easy.
Then, some of us carry that sentiment into adulthood.
The Solution: Amped up Balsamic/Oil dressing that can be used for dips, marinades, salads, etc. As it turns out, it is the solution to picky eaters at my house. I hope it can do the same for others!
One problem, I never measure the ingredients, but "a little of this and little of that" does the trick. I have used these ingredients together in a lot of different combos, and it always ends up being good:
-Canola Oil or Good Olive Oil, whichever you have on hand or a blend of the two
-Red Wine Vinegar- I do a 3:1 ratio of balsamic to red wine vinegar in this one
-garlic powder/granulated garlic or fresh minced garlic. If you go with fresh, give it a fine, fine mince or grated and store in the fridge
-sugar or I prefer Splenda ore Stevia sweetener- go light on the sweetener
Channeling the 1990's...This is how we do it:
Until next time....Happy Cooking!!!
