so delicious dairy-free easy to whip up balsamic vinegar

So good, you'll be looking for a salad or bread or meat or something to dip this into. Apples are also insanely good with this.
Use organic ingredients if you've got them.

Makes enough for maybe two-ish salads? Or so. This recipe is not an exact science. It's exactly delicious though.

  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 2 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 small diced shallot (this is the KEY!)
  • 1/2 tsp. whole grain mustard (the gritty kind, not the bright yellow kind)
  • 1 T. (or, you know, a big dollop) maple syrup
  • pinch kosher salt
  • pinch fresh ground black pepper

Whirl that up in a blender or, as I prefer, with your handy dandy handheld stick blender, and you're good to go.

I'm saving a little jelly jar to keep a double or triple recipe of this in my fridge. Good. Stuff.
