Traci over at beneath my heart is having a salad party. I'm a salad lover for sure.
I thought I'd share my fave balsamic dressing.
I have this in my little recipe box...
No idea which magazine it came from... but I've had it for a good 8 - 10 years. Soooo, I aplogize to the chef who came up with it at this Bavarian Lodge. :-)
Anyhow, I go here to get all my fresh herbs which I keep by my back door. (I've also used dried in the past)
I mix all the ingredients in this...
And then VOILA!! I put it in the fridge and it 's ready whenever I need it.
(Romaine lettuce, red pepper, red onion and pecans)
So here is the Vinaigrette recipe:
4 1/2 tsp. snipped fresh basil or 1 1/2 tsp. dried basil, crushed
4 1/2 tsp. snipped fresh oregano or 11/2 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1 tsp dijon-style mustard ( I sometimes use honey dijon)
1 tsp dried mincced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil and/or canola oil
Combine all ingredients and store covered in refrigerator up to 5 days. Makes 1 1/4 cups
