Fabulous dressing that definitely adds a kick to traditional balsamic vinaigrette! I used 1/4 c. balsamic and dried minced onion vs. shallot. It was perfect over mixed greens and fresh ripe tomatoes. Update: I've made this a couple times now and added a dash of chili powder and if you like this a little sweeter try adding a pinch or two of sugar.
My husband liked this vinaigrette but still prefers the Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette on this site better. He rates it a 3. I don't eat salad so I have to go with that. I had fun making this, though!
Very yummy dressing! Had to leave out the shallot as I didn't have any, so used some dried onion instead. Used very good quality balsamic and altered my oil to vinegar ratio to be more equal as we prefer them that way! Excellent, will make again.
Really great. It's 100 degrees in Los Angeles today and I've got nothing in the house. I decide to make a pasta salad with canned tuna, frozen peas, a mixture of 4 Italian grated cheeses and now I want I want an interesting vinigrette because I'm out of bottled dressing. I chose this one and it was outstanding. Couldn't be happier!!!
I added red wine vinegar instead of balsamic, since that was all I had on hand. I also didn't add the shallot. It was a little too oily for me, but still flavorful.
I love this one I use it with all types of salad. I mix tomatoes cucumbers and avocado with it.
Perfect for my tuna & bean salad. I used a little more mustard then called for (about 1-2 tsps.- I used Dijonnaise since that is what I had) and regular onion since I didn't have any shallots. First taste was delicious, can't wait to try it after its sat in the fridge for a bit. I would reduce the olive oil a tad next time though.
Pretty good dressing, but I did even out the olive oil and vinegar. I made them each 1/4 cup. It was tasty!
