Skip the bottled salad dressings and mix up this recipe for a quick vinaigrette dressing instead. Everyone loves it!Do you have one of those recipes that, without fail, someone asks you for when you take it to a potluck, picnic, or dinner party?

What is white balsamic vinegar?White balsamic vinegar is sold right alongside regular balsamic vinegar. According to Bon Appetit, it’s made the same way as regular balsamic vinegar. But instead of being simmered into a syrup and aged for a long time, it’s pressure cooked to prevent browning and aged for a shorter time. White balsamic has a golden color and a lighter taste than regular balsamic. But if you don’t have white balsamic or can’t find it, you can use regular balsamic (or your favorite vinegar) instead.
