Balsamic Vinaigrette

This quick and easy vinaigrette recipe would pair quite nicely with a Caprese salad.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Salt

Fresh-ground pepper

Optional add-ins

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 to 2 cloves minced garlic

2 to 3 teaspoons minced fresh herbs or 1 teaspoon dried herbs like oregano

A few teaspoons honey for a slightly sweeter dressing

Directions:

Combine the olive oil and balsamic in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Add a big pinch of salt and a little black pepper and any of the optional ingredients. Screw on the lid and shake hard.

Notes:

This vinaigrette will keep in the fridge for about a week.
