For the Apricot Balsamic Vinaigrette:

Using a whisk, mix first 4 ingredients into a medium sized bowl until thoroughly blended.  While continuing to whisk, slowly add olive oil to incorporate into the balsamic vinegar.  You will know the vinaigrette is ready when all of the oil and vinegar are completely blended. Use immediately.

If usage is delayed, it may be necessary to whisk or shake vigorously to re-emulsify.  Refrigerate any unused vinaigrette for up to 5 days.

For the Salad:

Create a bed of salad greens and add sliced red onion, grape tomatoes, sliced cucumber, and fresh or canned apricot slices.

When ready to serve, dress with Apricot Balsamic Vinaigrette, then top with seasoned croutons and optionally a sprinkle of grated Mozzarella or mild Provolone cheese and/or hard boiled egg.
