Balsamic Vinaigrette

*For Margie's Mom....and the ladies that asked last night at PWOC. LOL I have a minute - dinner is in the crock pot (BBQ meatballs) - and so I'll post NOW.....

This recipe sort of adapts. It's one that my sil, Rebecca, came up with. I change the sugar to Agave Nectar or Honey (AN is better tasting) and so adjust the vinegar....adding the balsamic to a bit more....basically I make this by taste...but here's the recipe.LOL

Start with a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup.

Mix together:

3 Tbsp sugar (sweetener of choice), 1 Tbsp Lemon Pepper (black pepper works in a pinch), 1 1/2 tsp sea salt, two pinches of dry beef bullion (I always skip), 2 large cloves of garlic (I use dried and guess), 1 scant Tbsp dry mustard


Fill to 1/3 C line with Balsamic Vinegar (remember to go a bit higher if using liquid sweetener)

Fill to 2/3 C line with Red Wine Vinegar

Fill to 1 3/4 C line with Canola Oil (I use Safflower)

Stir and that's that. I also put a bit of this in with steamed veggies....

YUM! Have you seen my recipe for "Ramie's Appetizer." It is one of our absolute favorites and it uses balsamic vinagrette! We had it 3 times during the Christmas/NYE season and it was a hit every time.
