Balsamic Vinaigrette

Continuing on with the documentation of my day of cooking while Zack was at work, I bring you the salad dressing next. We use a lot balsamic in our house. It's probably one of Zack's favorite things, so it was only natural that I would make a homemade balsamic vinaigrette for the salad.

It's very easy. If you stock the essentials, you will never have to buy sodium packed salad dressing again.

Here's what you need: 
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup olive oil

Here's what you do:
Combine brown sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl.

Add balsamic vinegar to the mix and whisk to combine.

Drizzle in the olive oil, whisking to emulsify.

Transfer to a carafe or squeeze bottle and keep in the fridge until ready to use.

Stick around for the amazingly tasty and simple Quinoa Mixed Greens salad I topped with this!
