Sunday we had a fun day at our friend’s new house. Didn’t have much time to do much food prep so we picked up some Chicken Kabobs at Wegmans.
However, I did manage to find the best homemade balsamic vinaigrette recipe that I will definitely be using exclusively moving forward. I’m a huge fan of balsamic dressing, especially the kind you can typically find at a good restaurant. Store bought brands just can never compare.
I’ll break down the individual components of the meal below
Purchased both the brown sugar and honey mustard chicken kebobs from Wegmans, grilled over direct heat (~450 degrees) for ~2 minutes on all 4 sides (chicken was cube shaped) then cooked off-center (not direct heat) for a few minutes more.
“Sheila’s Best Balsamic Dressing” from Food.com (I doubled the recipe)
- 4 TBS balsamic vinegar
- 2 TBS red wine vinegar
- 2 TBS Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp light brown sugar
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- Add all ingredients and mix well in blender or magic bullet if you have one.
- Chill and enjoy...
1/2 bag mixed greens (Wegmans), 1/2 bag spinach (Wegmans), chopped walnuts, cherry tomatoes, feta, chopped strawberries, croutons and slice almonds. Topped with the above mentioned balsamic vinaigrette.
Meal was definitely OnPoint!!!
