Use this dressing on your favorite salad greens. Toss with grapefruit segments, watermelon chunks, nuts, cheese and heirloom tomatoes to make a light, but satisfying salad anytime.

  • 3 oz McClary Bros. Basil Drinking Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 oz fresh basil

In a blender, add basil drinking vinegar, salt, black pepper, Dijon mustard and garlic. Combine on low speed. With the blender running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil to create an emulsion. (Add a few drops of water to thicken the dressing out if it becomes too thick.) Add the fresh basil. Pulse a few times to combine.

 


McClary Bros. Vinaigrette December 15 2015

This dressing is so simple to make and can be drizzled on a bed of mixed greens, mixed in a tomato-garlic-basil mixture served on toasts for bruschetta, sprinkled over caprese salad, and so much more!

  • 1 part McClary Bros. Drinking Vinegar (use your favorite flavor or experiment with combinations of flavors)
  • 2 parts Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Sea Salt to taste
Vigorously whisk the ingredients in a small bowl (or shake in a closed bottle or plastic container) until well blended together and a smooth consistency is achieved. Soon the mixture will separate so mix again just before drizzling
