Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette


2 garlic cloves, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tbsp minced shallot
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil


Mince garlic and mash to a paste with salt. In a bowl whisk together garlic paste, shallot, and vinegar and add oil in a stream, whisking until emulsified. Vinaigrette may be made 2 days ahead and chilled, covered. Bring vinaigrette to room temperature and whisk well before using.
