Balsamic Honey Dressing

Makes about 1 1/2 cups, 1 1/4 or 1 cup dressing depending on amount of vinegar used)

3/4 cup balsamic vinegar, to taste

Blend honey and mustard in a small bowl with a fork until emulsified.

Add just 1/4 cup of the balsamic vinegar. Taste and add
more vinegar until it reaches the tartness you desire. Add black pepper.

COOK'S NOTE: I use Inglehoffer stoneground mustard, and I add 1/2 cup of good quality balsamic vinegar and it still has a little sweetness to it.
