We got our black cherry balsamic vinegar from Trader Joes, although I have also found it online. The nasturtiums and red lettuce are easy to grow, so altogether this is a fairly easy salad to put together.
Baby Red Leaf Lettuce and Nasturtium Petals with Black Cherry Vinaigrette
Red lettuce leaves, washed and spun
Nasturtium petals (See notes)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup black cherry balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon minced shallot
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
1) Whisk the honey and Dijon together.
2) Add the black cherry balsamic vinegar and whisk.
3) Add shallots, the salt and pepper to taste.
4) Spin greens to ensure that they are dry, then dress with vinaigrette. Sprinkle nasturtium petals and serve.
Some people have sensitive allergies, so it's a good idea to remove the petals from the stamen and pistils.
