Alyce’s (and soon to be yours) Balsamic Vinaigrette
makes 1 cup dressing
fine quality balsamic vinegar-I like Masserie di Sant’eramo
heaping tablespoons dijon-style mustard
kosher salt-or to taste–this is a cup of dressing
several drops tabasco
best quality you can afford extra-virgin olive oil
To the food processor bowl*, add all ingredients
Let sit five minutes. Pulse slowly until thoroughly pureed and very-well mixed.
With machine running, slowly pour the 2/3 cup olive oil into the tube on top of the processor and leave running until thoroughly emulsified. Taste and adjust seasonings.
*Can be made in a large bowl with a wire whisk.
Keeps in frig several days. (Without shallot and garlic, will keep for weeks.)
