Garlic Balsamic Salad Dressing





1 clove minced garlic
1 T Balsamic vinegar
3 T EVOO
S & P to taste

Combine all ingredients. It is that easy.

I love the 'bite' from garlic, some don't. You can leave out the garlic if you wish.

I love this dressing on baby salad greens, 'tender greens' or arugula. This dressing would also be great on cous cous, grilled chicken, grilled beef or even kebabs.

*Garlic is apart of the Allium family which also includes onions and chives. Garlic can help lower blood pressure, prevent blood clotting and can be used as a decongestant. For best results - eat raw.

*To help get rid of garlic breath chew some fresh parsley.

  1. Does it have to be balsamic vinegar?

  2. No - any kind of vinegar you like. There are so many types of vinegars these days. Just use the kind you like. You could even do lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit juice instead of vinegar.

    Still do the 1:3 ratio. Sometimes it will take 1:4 - but usually it is 1:3.
