Spicy scallion vinaigrette

Author Notes:

Not only is this vinaigrette fabulous with anything grilled; it turns out to be a great salad dressing too - especially with summer vegetables.

The cayenne gives the vinaigrette a little kick, while the scallions add plenty of zest to it. This vinaigrette is a keeper!
