I was staying with a family friend last week in Vienna, and we made a caprese salad. It was delicious, with tomatoes, cheese, Parm ham, chopped basil and a great vinaigrette made with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I was planning on making it for myself, but I was wondering if any of you know the exact or approximate quantities or proportions of olive oil and balsamiuc vinegar for a dressing? I am on a budget, and cant really afford to waste a whole recipe of salad or even a batch of balsamic vinegar (the one I buy is pretty expensive).
If it helps, he used the same vinaigrette for a salad of coarsely chopped grilled peppers and pecorino cheese, which was also delicious.
