Your middle-of-the-road vinaigrette. Good for most lettuces. The balsamic vinegar adds a smoothness and depth of flavor that cuts the tart acid of the regular wine vinegar.
Whisk or process together all the ingredients in a bowl or blender. You may add chopped herbs or a minced clove of garlic, if you like. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
