    I make this all the time and usually dont have time to do it overnight, so if you are in a hurry add about 2 tablespoons of butter and microwave for 1 minute. The addition of butter seems to hold it all together. Also I add about a teaspoon of rosemary to it. Wonderful recipe if you like basalmic vinegar which I love.  -  14 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This IS delicious but I recommend making the seasoned Balsamic Vinegar in advance, holding back the extra virgin olive oil until ready to serve. For each 3 teaspoon serving of seasoned vinegar add 4 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil, not necessarily mixed together well.  -  16 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe. Been looking for it after I had it at a restaurant. Its great if you add 2 to 3 tbsp of parmesan cheese in the dip as well!  -  20 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
