Marianne's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Panini Monday was always best at Marianne's house if for no other reason than when we'd throw together a salad as an after thought, she always had her homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette on hand.  

So she claims he magic of this dressing is that it's different every time.  You have to tweak it the way you like it, but the basics are the following:

equal parts balsamic vinegar and oil, about 1/4 cup each (most people like more olive oil than vinegar, but I agree with Marianne, we like it strong - and it doesn't hurt that it makes it a tad less fattening). 
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon brown sugar

Shake it all up and serve.
