Routh Street Vinaigrette
This excellent vinaigrette is from Stephen Pyles Cookbook The New Texas Cuisine. This was a staple at the Routh Street Cafe in Dallas. It is a good for everyday salads and is wonderful when used on other recipes.
|2 1/2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar||2 1/2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar|
|1 cup extra virgin olive oil||1 cup vegetable oil|
|1 tsp. fresh cilantro, minced||1 tsp. fresh thyme, minced|
|1/2 tsp. fresh sage, minced||1 tsp. fresh basil, minced|
|1/2 tsp. cumin, ground||2 tsp. honey mustard|
|1 1/2 Tbsp. roasted garlic, pureed||1/2 tsp. kosher salt|
The roasted garlic makes quite a difference in this recipe. You can buy garlic that is already roasted at Central Market, or you can roast a whole clove in the oven. Add all ingredients except the oil and blend throughly. Slowly whisk in the oil.
