Cherry Vinaigrette

Last summer one of my neighbors brought me back a batch of beautiful Michigan cherries.  Having made this flavored vinegar earlier this year, I decided to use a few to make cherry vinegar.  What a beautiful color.  Fruit flavored vinegar is easy to make.  I combined the cherries and balsamic vinegar and let them sit in the fridge for a few weeks. 

I've gotten into the habit (a good habit) of making homemade salad dressing.  I made a simple vinaigrette with this cherry vinegar.   I chose a simple  recipe so the cherry vinegar could be the star.  It's so hard to get a good picture of dressing!  :-)





Cherry Vinaigrette

Combine 3 parts of your favorite oil with 1 part of flavored vinegar.  Add shallots and some dried herbs.  I make this a few hours before dinner so the flavors have a chance to develop.
