This simple concoction is a great multi-purpose sauce. For a fresh, quick salad, layer plum tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion, and part-skim mozzarella cheese cubes in a shallow dish, and drizzle with olive oil-balsamic sauce. Or serve it with crusty whole grain bread, which is a good source of fiber.For similar dressings, see our complete collection of salad dressing recipes.
