  • Make the vinaigrette by combining the olive oil, seasoned rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, sea salt & freshly cracked pepper, to taste, and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes together in a small jar; seal with a lid and shake until well combined.
    Set aside until needed. Side Note: We like a tangy vinaigrette, if you don't, add more olive oil, to taste.
