1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons packed dark brown sugar
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1. Whisk the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar together a small bowl (placed atop a damp towel to stabilize) until sugar has dissolved. Slowly pour in the olive oil in a small stream while whisking constantly until all has been incorporated and the vinaigrette is emulsified. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
This is an excellent recipe for a basic balsamic vinaigrette.
Makes 1 cup.
