Delicious! I did not have white balsamic so I used half white wine vinegar and half balsamic and the flavor is amazing. Anything that gets my children to eat vegtables is an added bonus.

Total time: 45 minutes. Using white balsamic vinegar maintains the salad dressing's pure golden color.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 1/4 cups salad)
