Honey Balsamic Vinegar Vinaigrette

Thanks to P. Allen Smith for the following basic sweet vinaigrette salad dressing.  I'm a big fan of his website -  Be sure to visit for gardening and cooking ideas.

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
2 cloves fresh garlic (minced)
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp salt

To the vinegar add the honey and extra virgin olive oil. Next add the water and blend.
Add the minced fresh garlic, 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper and about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Stir the mixture until it's well blended.
There's just something about the chemistry of the honey and the balsamic vinegar. When they come together they are the perfect accent for the spinach salad.
Wait to add the dressing until your ready to serve the salad and then just toss it altogether.
