This salad was one of the first things I made for Meredith. When we moved in together, I practically wasn't allowed to buy salad dressing - I had to make it myself. I think the only recent exception to that is the occasional bottle of Caesar dressing.
Recently, when a friend visited, I was asked what ever happened to the balsamic vinaigrette I used to make. I realized that I hadn't made it in some time and frequently make other less complex (and less tasty) dressings (and salads, for that matter). I decided it was time to give the kitchen sink salad another whirl.
Balsamic Vinaigrette (for a kitchen-sink salad)
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp mustard (dijon or hot)
- 1-2 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- dash salt
- Add all ingredients to a small jar and mix with a fork until combined.
