A simple yet tasty Balsamic Vinaigrette, courtesy of Emeril Lagasse

His recipe says that brown sugar is optional, but I liked the addition of it:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar, optional* (I used one tsp)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

Instructions:

Beat the vinegar in a bowl with the optional sugar, garlic, salt and pepper until sugar and salt dissolves. Then beat in the oil by droplets, whisking constantly. (Or place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake to combine.) Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Toss a few tablespoons of the dressing with the salad mix and desired salad ingredients, or use as a marinade. Fresh garlic makes the recipe for sure. If you’re following the South Beach plan, this is a good dressing for Phase 1 if you leave out the brown sugar.

Tonight I’m trying out a new spaghetti meat sauce recipe also. If it’s worthy, I’ll post it.
