One of the many things I learned in the the cookbook writing process was how to spell “vinaigrette”. It’s one of those words that looks wrong even when it is right so thank you, eagle-eyed editors. Here’s the recipe – it has garlicy, sweet and sour notes which you can adjust by using more or less dark chocolate.

2 tablespoons balsamic


2 tablespoons rice wine

vinegar (or white vinegar)

1 ounce dark chocolate,


2 tablespoons water

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Ground pepper to taste

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend on low

until mixed, less than a minute.
