Making homemade salad dressings is a lot easier than one may think, and you don’t need 20+ ingredients or preservatives to do it. My favorite is a balsamic vinaigrette. The key is to use an aged balsamic vinegar. My favorite stores to purchase my 18 year aged balsamic is the Naples Olive Oil Company or the newly discovered Key West Olive Oil Company. (And guess what? They ship!!!) If you ever get to visit one of these stores (or stores similar to them), consider investing 30+ minutes in sampling all of the various infused EVOO and Balsamics. They are AMAZING!!!
Equal portions of aged balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh squeezed orange/tangerine juice. Add a dash of salt and fresh cracked pepper and wisk in a small bowl. Poor over salad or fresh veggies or fruit of choice.
