SIDE NOTES:

~ Very easy/tasty dressing to whip together. Of course, the key to making a salad dressing (or anything for that matter) taste delicious, is using the highest quality ingredients available.

~  Tweak the measurements to your personal preference. Use more or less balsamic depending how much you like vinegar, try adding an additional teaspoon of mustard, more garlic, a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for a kick, different herbs… (etc).

~ You can substitute red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar if need be. In fact, yesterday, I used half balsamic & half red wine vinegar (because I ran out of balsamic) and it tasted great.
