"Vulgarity is the garlic in the salad of life."
-Cyril Connolly, English Critic
This dressing was modified by removing from 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper from the original recipe. Many people can tolerate black pepper and not have it trigger their reflux symptoms. The dressing is great with and without the pepper.
The amount of vinegar is slight and not likely enough to trigger reflux symptoms but just enough to give the flavor of the balsamic vinegar.
