Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

This vinaigrette (as many times as I type that word it will never look right!) is perfect on any salad, especially one with fruit in it. It's light, full of flavor, and slightly sweet. On top of all that, it comes together in a pinch!

I know, what is with the spelling of vinaigrette, seriously? I have to look it up every time I type it. This one looks great - I like balsamic vinaigrettes, and I can imagine that honey is a great compliment to the vinegar.

This looks wonderful, Daughter. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for providing me with a supper idea for tomorrow. I love you!
