Balsamic Vinaigrette

The key to making a good balsamic vinaigrette is balancing tangy balsamic vinegar with olive oil. Here I’ve added a bit of brown sugar to bring out the sweetness in the balsamic, and some marjoram leaves for herbal freshness. This dressing comes together in about 5 minutes, and thanks to the blender it has a thick, creamy consistency. Use any leftovers to marinate meat or vegetables for grilling.

Instructions

Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until evenly combined, about 30 seconds. Refrigerate in a container with a tightfitting lid for up to 3 days.
