Rosemary Red Wine Vinaigrette

It’s hard to believe how quickly Christmas is approaching especially when I feel like I’ve just recovered from Thanksgiving.  I know many of you are already busy prepping or gathering ideas for your upcoming holiday meals. When it comes to my family there must be prime rib, mashed potatoes, buttery hot rolls and of course a salad. This holiday season I’ve teamed up with Pompeian and their Red Wine Vinegar with the “Mother” to make this delicious and festive Rosemary Red Wine Vinaigrette. To stay healthy around the holidays you can do something as simple as trying this vinaigrette. By consuming two tablespoons of red wine vinegar with the mother each day you can improve the digestive system and boost the immune system. It can also help relieve a sore throat and we all know they are more frequent during the cold months.
