Roasted Grape Vinaigrette

This is a wonderful fresh flavored dressing that will brighten up any salad!


 Summer is officially over for most but here it can be nicer in the winter than it is in the summer.  I got the idea to make this dressing after seeing one of Rowena Dumlao-Giardina recipes on her blog Aprons and Sneakers.  The beauty of this dressing is that it is great in both summer and winter.  You can serve it chilled or warm it up and drizzle it over a kale salad.

  • 2 Tablespoons Shallots – minced
  • 1 Garlic – minced

  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Roast grapes on the top rack for 15 – 18 minutes,
