clementine pomegranate winter saladI couldn’t wait to use my new juniper balsamic again…it was a great addition to my short rib stew, which brought back memories of rich, delicious gravy that my mom makes. Today I tried a simple vinaigrette of blood orange evoo, juniper balsamic and seasoning. It was the perfect [winter] coat for my winter salad.

I drizzled the vinaigrette over sliced endive, red cabbage, red onion and romaine topped with clementine and pomegranate seeds. Remember, the ration of evoo to balsamic is 3:1 (3-2-1).
