Zinfandel Vinaigrette

Rated as 4.1 out of 5 Stars

"The two most important ingredients for this or any vinaigrette are the olive oil and the vinegar. For the oil try using cold pressed, extra virgin, and made from 100% Italian olives. For the vinegar, try using a 40 year old sherry vinegar from Spain. Also try adding a dash of Dijon mustard for a kick to this dressing."

This was OK, it was pretty average. I don't know too many people who would use 40 year old sherry for a salad dressing. It's not exactly cheap.

Kind of standard but better with the dijon; didn't care for the parsley addition.

I don't think it is an unreasonable gripe that since this recipe has nothing to do with Zinfandel, which is a variety of red grape, that it is not only misleading but incorrect to call this "Zin...

Really enjoyed this dressing reminded me of one I had at a local Cuban restaurant. The salad it topped was comprised of mixed greens, navel orange sections, julienned jicama and toasted pumpkin ...

This is a nice dressing, and I bet that it would be really good with an aged sherry vinegar! It could have used the Dijon for sure, and I wish I'd thought to put some feta cheese on these tomat...

This was good. Pretty standard, really. I didn't have any sherry wine vinegar, so I used 3 parts tarragon vinegar and one part balsamic. I used it on a salad very shortly after making this, b...

I like the addition of the basil, shallots and garlic to add some elegant flavor to the basic vinaigrette, but I personally don't care for plain olive oil type recipes. It tasted too oily to me ...

I really liked it. Nice, tangy addition to our dinner salad. Easy to make too. :)
