2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fine sea salt

2 small garlic cloves (just throw them in)
1/2 cup Leonardo & Roberto’s Gourmet Blends Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
1 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil
1) In a blender or food processor, blend the honey, balsamic, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic. While still blending, add the oil slowly.
2) Place in jar, refrigerate.
