Dark Balsamic Goat Cheese Salad Dressing July 02 2014, 0 Comments

I have a lot of people ask me what my favorite use for a Dark Balsamic Vinegar is, and I have to admit, I use it to make my own salad dressings. Now for those of you who aren't super into cooking, don't worry, this is probably one of the simplest things you could make. It seriously takes 2 items. That's it. 

So first thing I do is take my goat cheese out of the fridge to allow it to warm up just a bit, making it a bit softer. Then I take whatever flavor Dark Balsamic I want to use, and I figure out how much salad dressing I'm going to need. Am I feeding just myself? A party? etc. Once I've decided how much I need, I pour that into a mixing bowl. I then grab my goat cheese, and I add the cheese. Now how much you add really depends on how much you like goat cheese. I personally love goat cheese, so I add about 2 tables per person. Then I let it sit. The acids in the vinegar will break down the goat cheese, and I stir every so often while I'm making the salad just to make sure no chunks are left. The final product is a wonderfully creamy smooth dressing. Sometimes I'll add a few herbs or spices if I'm feeling really wild, but generally the flavored vinegar is plenty for my palette. 

So go crazy! pick up a bottle of Espresso Dark Balsamic Vinegar for that spinach salad, let me know how you made it. Did you use any herbs? how much cheese do you like? Let me know in the comments below.
