Dorien's Balsamic Dressing

I make this all the time. It's wonderful. It's actually sort of hard for me to give this recipe up... there I said it.

Dorien's Balsamic Dressing

1 Clove Garlic
1/4 C Good Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 T Dijon Mustard
1/2 T Brown Sugar
1/2 t Dried Oregano
1/2 C Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

I have an immersion blender. It's my #2 favorite kitchen gadget. I've had it for years, I think it was a gift but I honestly don't remember. I use this for all my salad dressings. If you don't have one, you can use a blender but you will have to double the recipe. If you don't have a blender either, you can use a whisk or a fork but you will have to squeeze the garlic through a press.

So all you do is place the first 5 ingredients into the blender or the immersion blender-cup turn the blender on and slowly add in the olive oil until the viscosity is nice and thick. Then add salt and pepper to taste.
I'm regretting this. Sigh...
