I don't usually measure my dressings, but I suspect I'm at about a 3:1 ratio as far as vinegar to oil goes. I LOVE vinegar, so often I add pickled vegetables to my salads in addition to the dressing.

Here's a great balsamic vinegar dressing recipe:
vinegar
oil
prepared horseradish
italian seasoning

This last bottle of balsamic that I bought, was a White Balsamic. I can use it straight up. I guess I did the other sometimes also, but if I did mix it I was usually about half and half, maybe a little more balsamic.

Yes, straight up is a bit tangy but I like it emoticon

I just made my recipe for the first time last week. It was so delicious. I used 3 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar, 1-1/2 Tsp. Extra Virgin olive oil, 1/8 Tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 3/4 Tsp. minced fresh Garlic, 1/8 Tsp. salt, 3 dashes pepper. I mixed it up in a mini food processor.

Giving up is simply not an option.

I find 2:1 (oil to vinegar) is just fine.

In fact, i will go to a ratio of as low as 1:1 sometimes - yes it's tangy but I like it that way, a bigger problem is it just gets too darn thin! But i thicken it with a spoon of prepared dijon mustard.

That will really come down to your personal preferences :) I like it about 2 to 1 each. The classic is 3 to 1, oil to vinegar that is :)
