We made it to the end.  A lot of Sriracha has been consumed, along with a lot of water.  I am concluding the week with a simple recipe for Sriracha balsamic vinaigrette.  I could have saved the best for last but I found so many amazing recipes and post from many amazing bloggers that I wanted to share with you.

So first, the dressing.  I made a very simple balsamic vinaigrette and simply added a little Sriracha to it.  Let’s face it: after yesterday’s pasta bake, the biscuits earlier this week and the usual amounts of sugar that I consume, it was time for something just a little on the healthier side.  I made a quick salad with spinach, tomatoes, banana peppers, red peppers, feta cheese and avocado and drenched it with this spicy balsamic vinaigrette.

I very rarely buy salad dressing at the grocery store.  They are so easy to make at home, you can add any herbs and spice you want and you can have a new flavor each and every time you have a salad, and I love that I can keep salads interesting that way!
