It’s been awhile since I posted a new recipe. This is one I’ve been playing with on my daily lunch salad. I’d been reading that cinnamon is good for you, but I don’t really eat anything regularly that would include it. So I came up with this dressing.
Balsamic Cinnaigrette Dressing
Makes 2 Servings (unless you’re greedy)
3 tblsp Balsamic Vinegar
5 tblsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (as opposed to worn-out ho olive oil)
1 tsp Dried Basil Leaves
3/4 tsp Cinnamon
Salt and Pepper to taste
Super easy… You can whisk all these ingredients together. Or if you’re lazy like me, put them in a container that seals really well. Throw all the ingredients in and shake it all around (hokey pokey optional). You can use it immediately, but it tastes better if you let it sit for a little while so all the flavors mix more.
Here’s the salad I put it on, but you can throw it over anything. I haven’t tried using it as a marinade yet, but that’s next.
Kidney and/or Black Beans
Red Bell Pepper
Sliced Boiled Egg
2 or 3 Slices of Turkey Lunchmeat
