Truffle is used extensively in the culinary world to enhance the overall flavor of many dishes. A Truffle is an edible fungus that grows in the wild, commonly amongst tree roots. Truffle is cultivated and harvested from natural habitats which is why it is very expensive and sought after. Truffle in its raw form has a very strong and distinct flavor. Because of the exorbitant cost and demand, utilizing an oil infused with truffle affords you the flavor of truffle at a more reasonable cost.

What Truffle Oil to use for The Balsamic Truffle Vinaigrette Dressing?

White and Black Truffles oils both work great in this dressing. White truffles are usually more mild in flavor so if you want a more subtle truffle taste go for that. If you are a big fan of truffles or if you prefer stronger flavors in general, you might prefer black truffle oil.
