Basic Balsamic Vinaigrette

I love this vinaigrette!  It’s so easy to make and is great with just about any type of salad. 


Yield:  1 cup




¼ cup good balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped

½ cup olive oil

½ teaspoon black pepper

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon thyme, finely chopped




In a small bowl, combine the vinegar and brown sugar.  Add the garlic, pepper and pinch of salt.  Slowly whisk in the olive oil until fully incorporated.  Great basic dressing for mixed green salads.
