Nifty Gadget and Tasty Summer Salad

I got this nifty little gadget for Christmas this year from Mom. It’s an emulsifier. It has recipes on the side for Balsamic Vinaigrette and Honey Mustard dressings. As you know, oil tends to separate from other liquids when mixed together. With a little paddle inside and a pumping action, this gadget mixes all of the liquids together to make one blended dressing.

This weekend, I made Balsamic Vinaigrette for a Tomato Cucumber Salad. It’s a little different from the recipe printed on the side, but I’ll have to try that one next.

I used 6-8 Campari tomatoes peeled using this method and chopped small. To that, I added a chopped, peeled, and seeded cucumber. Then, the veggies went off to the fridge to chill.

For the dressing, add the following ingredients to the emulsifier:

1/4 cup olive oil

2 T balsamic vinegar

2 T red wine vinegar

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 t salt

1 t Italian seasoning

Mix well, and dress the tomato/cucumber mixture to taste.
