An Italian Grandma’s Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe: Your New Go-To Salad Dressing Recipe by Ann Marie Patitucci
Originating in Modena, Italy, balsamic vinegar is a dark, concentrated, strongly flavored vinegar. The first reference to balsamic vinegar was in 1046 – back then it was used as a disinfectant! Today, balsamic vinegar is utilized in cooking and used by professional and home cooks around the world, on salads and more.
I love balsamic vinegar and balsamic vinaigrette is my favorite salad dressing. Of course homemade is the best. This balsamic vinaigrette recipe is my mom’s. Use this delicious dressing either chilled or at room temperature. Serve over salad with store-bought or homemade croutons.
