Olive oil or avocado oil is the oil. Also acceptable is grapeseed oil. We are big fans of balsamic vinegar, but you could also use red wine vinegar in this recipe. Italian seasoning: if you do not have any Italian seasoning on hand, you can manufacture some by using the following other herbs: parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary—all dried—are included.
