Balsamic Vinaigrette

I'm not the only one who loves straight, plain balsamic vinegar, right? Admittedly, this salad dressing is has a higher vinegar-to-oil ratio than normal, but I can't help it - I love me so balsamic! 

While the flavor of balsamic vinegar is bright and beautiful on it's own, this vinaigrette adds a little more deliciousness to the classic salad dressing. There's a new sweetness from the sugar that highlights the natural sweetness of balsamic, and lemon zest adds citrus flavor without upping the sour factor like lemon juice would! 

Obviously this dressing is perfection on the classic Caprese salad. And why not use this as the dressing for pasta salad? Just shake or whisk all of the ingredients together, and enjoy!
