Mint and Yellow Woodsorrel Balsamic Vinaigrette

It's really strange, I've hated vinegar all my life, but I'm starting to enjoy balsamic. Wacky. :]

I wanted something to complement my "almost all from the yard" salad of baby lettuce, shelled peas, baby zucchini, chives, shredded carrot, and sunflower seeds. This is what I came up with:

Mint and Sweet Clover Balsamic Vinaigrette

makes 1 serving

1 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp agave nectar
1/4 tsp salt
4 or 5 leaves fresh mint, finely chopped
1 small bunch yellow woodsorrel leaves, finely chopped
pinch fresh ground black pepper

Blend all in a small cup with a fork, pour over salad, enjoy!

The tang of the woodsorrel and the vinegar combine, and are tempered by the agave nectar, and refreshed by the mint.

Edit: My mistake, what I've always known as "sweet clover" is actually woodsorrel!
