White Balsamic Vinaigrette

Is it weird that I was freakishly excited when they introduced the fancy oil and vinegar bar at my grocery store? Or that I’m really excited to post about a salad dressing the day after Thanksgiving?

Just thinking about all of the butternut squash risotto, sweet potato pie, flourless brownies, pumpkin pie bars, and pumpkin tarts that we ate makes my body scream for fresh greens and lighter foods. Maybe that’s why this is so darn appealing to me right now.

I guess I just needed to lighten up my palate after the big (heavy) feast that we had last night.

I also needed to find a reason to use the white balsamic vinegar that I got a few weeks ago. Salads with a gal pal was the perfect time. And this was the perfect recipe.

And you know what? It hit the spot…perfectly.
