Balsamic Vinegar Dressing Recipe


Balsamic vinegar has gained popularity in the U.S. in the past 20 years. The Italians had used its rich, sweet complex flavor for centuries. It tops everything from strawberries to salmon and in this case makes a magnificent salad dressing. You can purchase it at different ages, from 12-25 years. It is expensive; however a little goes a long way. Although this balsamic vinegar dressing recipe allows substitution of vinegars, it is highly recommended to splurge on a good bottle of balsamic vinegar.


3/4 cup water
1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
3 teaspoons capers
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


1. Combine the ingredients. Adjust vinegar to taste, since it has a strong flavor.

2. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 cup.

Note: If you don't have balsamic vinegar, you may substitute another kind. If this be the case, start with water and vinegar in equal proportions.
