Frugal Flop: Balsamic Vinaigrette
This is what I had in mind:
I turned to my trusted cookbook, How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. This is the modern version of Mom's red-and-white-checked Better Homes & Gardens cookbook (remember this?) and it hasn't done me wrong yet.
What I ended up with didn't look anything like what I had pictured. In fact, it looked several shades ickier than I had imagined.
Remember that I am the mom of a young baby. You can just ponder that a minute.
I tasted a bit on a lettuce leaf, and it wasn't bad, but I just couldn't get past the look of it.
So! Balsamic vinaigrette is completely out of the question. Anybody have a different homemade salad dressing recipe they could share? Tell me in the comments!
