Shallot and garlic add some zing to a simple salad dressing.
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 medium-sized shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  1. Mince a medium-sized shallot very finely.
  2. Mince one clove of garlic very finely.
  3. Measure olive oil into a small bowl.
  4. Add minced shallot and garlic to bowl, let sit for at least 20 minutes to infuse flavor.
  5. While 20 minutes will do, longer is better, and you'll have great results starting this the day before or making a larger batch and using it for several days.
  6. To dress salad, add 1 tsp. of balsamic vinegar to a large mixing bowl of shredded greens, toss, then add olive oil/garlic/shallot mixture and toss again.
  7. Alternatively, add vinegar to the bowl of olive oil/garlic/shallot mixture, stir together, and then toss it with the salad.
