Super good and super easy to make. Balsamic vinegar has become one of our favourites, added to the ingredients we favour it came together to make for one terrific supper. I only had a cup of asparagus so added in a cup of fresh green beans and halved cherry tomatoes (it was what I had on hand) Worked out well and tasted great. Thank you, we enjoyed. JULY 11 - this made for one great supper last night, tasted as good as it did last May. Update - the Balsamic  dressing is awesome for potatoes and veggies when grilling (I  make them in foil packets or cover the grill basket in foil unil almost done, removing the foil continuing grilling until done)

This was FANTASTIC!! Instead of serving over rice, I doubled the asparagus and carrots. The dressing mixture is the absolute perfect combination of sweet and hot, and goes really well with all the other flavours. Definitely going to be making this one again, and equally definitely going to be using the dressing mix for other things as well.
