Underground Vinaigrette

This is another creation from Chef Scott Anderson, Chief Cook, Bottle Washer & Co-Owner of Community Garden Market in Shepherdstown, WV. This time, an insanely delicious and very easy-to-make Underground Vinaigrette. Highlighted by our Black Cherry Wood Finished Bourbon. There is nothing better than a refreshing salad on a hot summer day. Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your desired flavor profile but make sure you use quality ingredients, especially the mustard as that will bring it all together in an emulsion when mixed.

  • 1/3 cup high-quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup White Balsamic Vinegar
