To create the vinaigrette:

To make the vinaigrette I use about 1/8 of a teaspoon of my Original Hot and Spicy Blend of goodness to create a subtle kick. Mix the olive oil, champagne vinegar and with the spicy blend and you have a vinaigrette ready in 2 minutes.  You can use any other types of vinegar if you want.
