Balsamic Dressing (warm)



This dressing is great over a fresh Spinach Salad.  The hot dressing will slightly wilt the spinach leaves.

¼ tsp. ground black pepper
2 tbl. onion, finely chopped
1 tbl. sherry
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. paprika
4 tbl. Balsamic vinegar
1 tbl. white wine vinegar
½ tsp. fresh tarragon (or ¼ tsp. if you have to use dried)
1 tbl. brown sugar
2 tsp. ketchup
1 tsp. fresh Chervil, chopped (or Parsley if you don’t have Chervil)


 Directions
·         In a skillet, saut√© bacon over medium-low heat until just done, but not crisp
·         Remove from heat, and add the olive oil, black pepper, onions, sherry, garlic powder, and paprika
·         Stir until mixed well, then return to heat over medium-low for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender
·         Remove from heat again and add the Balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar, tarragaon, and brown sugar
·         Mix well
·         Add the ketchup and Chervil, and mix well again
·         Put into a small saucepan and set aside until ready to heat up to pour over salad  Note:  you can also serve this cold if you prefer, but it’s better hot!)
·         Makes enough for 4 to 6 people
