This makes a great, fresh tasting salad that is simple to prepare. This makes a great side dish for a BBQ, picnic or any party.
The rule of thumb ratio for a classic vinegarette is 1 part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil. With a Balsamic vinegarette, you may wish to make adjustments based on the flavor and quality of your vinegar and olive oil, so adjust to taste.
