    Very tasty. I had made this before as written and was happy with the result. This time I used a bit less olive oil, added a small amount of finely minced shallots and no salt.

    Great balsamic vinaigrette! Whisked by hand, and the texture was perfect. Will be my go-to dressing.

    Fantastic flavor! I only changed it by making my batch in the food processor; I like my dressing creamy. This recipe goes in my "A+" file.
