  • 1 T dried herbs (herbs de Provence, Italian blend or whatever you like)
  • 1 clove chopped garlic (optional)
  • 1 T chopped onion or shallot (optional)
  • 1 T raw honey or maple syrup (optional) (I wouldn’t use with balsamic as it will get too sweet, but great with lemon or apple cider vinegar)
