The virtue of vinaigrettes is their simplicity. I was tired of the basic formulas and the store bought brands. I was trying to think of a way to kick up a recipe a notch or two. I put things together until I thought it tasted several steps above the store bought brands, alot fresher and it seemed to make the salad crispier and lighter! It is best served over arugala, the lettuce with a big peppery taste.
