Sweet Balsamic Dressing on a Chicken & Radish Salad
I love finding a new recipe for a homemade dressing. Anything you can make that makes vegetables taste delicious is a winner in my book. This dressing has only a few ingredients, but tastes much more complex. It comes together in a cinch and you can save it for days and reuse it. If you're bored of the same old same old dressing, give this one a try.
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 good quality balsamic vinegar
1/2 clove garlic
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
You want to add all of your ingredients except for the olive oil into a mini prep, and blend them together. Then slowly add the oil so it can emulsify. Blend until smooth and fully incorporated.
For this particular salad we used shredded romaine hearts, radishes, grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, croutons, and blue cheese dressing. The previous day I made this salad we used feta cheese, spinach, cucumbers, and almonds. Both of these salads were fantastic. That's the great thing about a good dressing. You can put it on about anything and it will taste fantastic.
