Aged Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

Vinaigrette dressing as a commonplace food item found in most pantries. It is so simple to make and can be varied by adding different ingredients to the oil, vinegar and mustard base elements. The ingredients can be altered depending on individual taste.

Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

1 tbs soy sauce or tamari
2 tbs honey (clover variety)
2 cloves of garlic put through a garlic press
½ cup of extra virgin olive oil
Dried red pepper to taste (should be crushed)

Blend all ingredients together either in an average sized bowl or food processor. Pay attention to the mixing of oil and vinegar to ensure they are perfectly blended and the end result is smooth an even.

A crisp seasonal salad is the ideal accompaniment to your vinaigrette. When you have dressed your salad you should refrigerate your leftover dressing by storing in an appropriate sealed container. By creating your vinaigrette dressing at home to your specifications you can be confident that no fats that have been hydrogenated, which occurs  in mass produced, shop bought products. During the manufacturing of off the shelf dressings, fats are hydrogenated to help stabilize the contents and prolong longer life of the product. The disadvantage, however, is that these hydrogenated fats turn into harmful trans fats. These are difficult to detect as there is  no legal requirement for the manufacturers to display this information on the contents label.
