Balsamic Vinegar

I have a new sister in law in love with the stuff. Guess what, you should be too! Balsamic vinegars (well vinegars in general actually) are good for your health. Balsamic vinegar has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, tons of antioxidants, promotes a healthy digestive system, reduces headaches, controlls blood sugar levels, is a natural appetite suppressant, and a whole bunch more things related to anti-aging, fatigue and your bones.

Here is a dressing or a dipping sauce. We used it tonight for our steamed broccoli. (some of us poured some right onto our lentil patties!)

5 cloves of roasted garlic
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard

Puree everything and start dipping!
