Sometimes you can find "different" vinegars, oils, etc. at stores such as TJ Maxx. That's where I buy champagne vinegar.

I almost always use white balsamic vinegar for a vinaigrette, but tried tarragon vinegar last night since I had some on hand - yep, it was good. :)

aHobbs - thanks for the recommendation. I always have tarragon vinegar on hand and use it in Green Goddess Dressing. Why I never thought to use it in a straight vinaigrette is a myster! I LOVE tarragon...again, thanks! I bet you could do a version of German potato salad using it.

if you can't find tarragon vinegar, you can always make it.
take a bottle,
put in some fresh tarragon ( dried I don't Know never tried it)
bring white vinegar to just a boil and pour into your bottle
let set week - or 2

You can also make a somewhat milder more refined Tarragon Vinegar by using half white vinegar & half white wine. But when I make this I do it in fairly small amounts & keep it refrigerated since the wine does cut the acidity of the vinegar quite a bit, & thus it's safer bacteria-wise to keep it in the fridge.

I often use tarragon mustard in my vinaigrette. I love that tarragon flavor.
