Dijon - Balsamic Dressing

Yes, oh, yes! A while back, there was a discussion of how to eat out
at restaurants. This kind of dressing is really helpful at salad bars
and sandwich places. Who knows what's in half those "ff" dressings,
so I just whip together a little spicy mustard and some balsamic
vinegar. Or use some red wine vinegar if they don't have balsamic.
And that reminds me of a nice dessert for a salad bar place ...
strawberries with a little black pepper and a spritz of balsamic
vinegar. I know it sounds funny, but it's really good! I had this
years ago at a funky Italian place here and loved it. Everyone thinks
I'm weird, then they take a nibble. "Not too bad" or "Wow!" are the
most common resonses, even from kids. Part of why I'm reminded is
that I've taken the dessert a step farther and made it into a salad
dressing at home ... just pop into the blender or food processor
strawberries, balsamic vinegar, coarsely ground black pepper, and a
little honey. MMMMMMM!
