This vinaigrette is a great example of how a few simple ingredients combined together can knock your socks off. It tastes like the fabulous salad dressings you get at Italian restaurants for good reason…it is from one ~ Carmine’s in New York. I’ve never been to Carmine’s or New York for that matter, but I do have Carmine’s Family-Style Cookbook & after trying this recipe, I’m looking forward to trying more from the cookbook. Keeper recipe for sure! I could not get a good picture of this so you’ll just have to use your imagination or better yet, make it!
Makes about 1/2 cup
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tb imported red wine vinegar
pinch of dried oregano

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oregano & salt & pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until it is well blended.
