Roasted Walnut Vinaigrette

CG brought home La Tourangelle Roasted Walnut Oil from TJ Maxx ($6.99). It is from a company out of California (who has very beautiful pictures on their website), and there is a recipe for a vinaigrette on the back of the can. She asked me to make the dressing for a salad for dinner. Two nights in a row. The dressing is light and flavorful, savory and delicious.

At this rate, the can of oil won't last long, so I'm on a mission to find more. The website lists US stores that carry their oils, and says that a nearby grocery store carries it, or they have several online merchants (prices ranging from $9.75 to $12.99-yikes!). I'll report back on the grocery store price. (and do a taste test if I find other roasted walnut oils)

In the meantime, here's the recipe:

Roasted Walnut Vinaigrette

4 tablespoons La Tourangelle Roasted Walnut Oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dijon
Dash of salt to taste (I used a pinch!)

Whisk together or shake until well combined. Mix again before tossing with salad; toss with salad just before serving.
