Apple Balsamic Vinaigrette

I love a balsamic vinaigrette and haven't found a bottled one I like.I decided to make my own. Here is one attempt that I really enjoyed. If you like a bite to your dressing, use the jalapeno pepper. I enjoyed it in there, but it was really spicy. This dressing was lovely and gave a similar flavor to my salad as Panera Bread's White Balsamic Apple Vinaigrette. I really enjoyed it. If I come across a better one, I'll edit and let you know!
