Simple Lettuce & Tomato Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Balsamico di Modena
The last time our grandson, Mayz, had dinner with us we had salad and I asked him if he'd like ranch dressing in his salad and he said he really liked balsamic dressing. So I made a very simple balsamic dressing today that was inspired by him. It tasted much better than store-bought dressing and took less than 5 minutes to prepare. It was a hit at dinner tonight!

Besides dressing a salad, it would be great as a marinade for chicken or fish and drizzled on as a garnish right before serving, as well as a dressing for fruit salad.

Ingredients: (serves 3)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tsp. sugar/Splenda (or to taste)
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
pinch of salt
Romaine lettuce, torn in bite-sized pieces
1 beefsteak tomato, cut in bite-sized pieces

  1. Dissolve sugar in balsamic vinegar.
  2. Beat with EVOO and salt.
  3. Drizzle over lettuce and tomatoes & toss to dress.
Serve chilled.
