  • Balsamic Champagne Vinaigrette see recipe below
Ingredients for Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Recipe Notes

Notes: ~ * To toast pecans, just bake in a 350˚F oven for 5-8 minutes or until golden. I always use a timer as they can burn quite easily and that makes me cry. ~ ** To make goat cheese a bit easier to crumble, place in freezer for 15-20 minutes in advance.
