Pignatelli’s Ellis Island Vinaigrette

Easy To Make

I have been making this family vinaigrette recipe for decades and sometimes bring a bottle of it to friends’ houses when visiting. I like it so much that I thought I would share the recipe with our readers.

Caprese
Tomato Caprese

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What you need

  • A wine bottle or any bottle that will hold about 25oz (750ml)
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • 1 cup bottled or filtered water
  • 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano flakes
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp dried basil

First

Get all of your dry and chopped ingredients into the bottle

Second

Using a funnel, pour the water, olive oil and  vinegar into the bottle

Third

Tightly cap or cork the bottle and shake it well. Let the mixture sit for a day so that the flavors can blend.

This will go great with a caprese salad or just a plain old lettuce and tomato salad. You’ll want to have some fresh, crusty bread for mopping.

Enjoy!
