Brown Butter Vinaigrette

This brown butter vinaigrette will become a new favorite

The first time I made this brown butter vinaigrette was for my Butternut Squash Salad.  This nutty and buttery vinaigrette is served warm or room temperature and can go well with roasted and grilled vegetables; fish and shellfish dishes; or even grilled and seared chicken and steak.

I made this salad for this past Thanksgiving, my sister loved it and said: “The colors of the salad are so pretty and the dressing is so good!”.  She asked, “Where did you get the recipe?” I told her “Me,” and we just started laughing…It was a great holiday having her here with us.
