Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette

I promised my dinner guests the other night that I would post the recipe for the dressing on the salad.

I pulled this from several websites. I'm not sure if the final is someone else's recipe or not.

Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette

4 TB Fresh Basil, rough chop
2 TB Shallot, rough chop
1 Garlic Clove, rough chop
2 TB Dijon Mustard

To taste, Salt, Black Pepper, Sugar (I started at about 1 TB each, and added pinches until it's right)

3/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup Olive Oil

Blend all ingredients in the food processor until well blended. Then slowly add the oil until emulsified.

I chilled mine for a few hours before was great!

And you get about 2 cups of vinaigrette.

[3/4 of what for the vinegar? A cup?]
