Maple Vinaigrette Dressing
Maple Vinaigrette Dressing with apple cider vinegar is sweet and smoky adds so much flavor to your favorite mixed green salads. It pairs really well with salads with fruit such as apples and pears or dried fruit and nuts.
Vinaigrettes are my absolute favorite way to dress a salad. I believe my love of vinaigrettes come from my parents and grandparents because growing up, there were no bottles of ranch or blue cheese on our dinner table, there was oil and vinegar.
Fast forward a few years to my parents’ second restaurant and that is where I learned how to make a proper vinaigrette (aka house dressing).
Maple Vinaigrette with Apple Cider Vinegar
This Maple Vinaigrette is far from any of the Italian ones I grew up with, however, the method is still the same. Combine your oil and vinegar of choice, season it up and shake shake shake. Instead of honey (which is usually my go-to sweetener of choice when it comes to salad dressing) I like to change things up every now and then and use pure maple syrup for a more bold flavor.
The maple flavor works so well with any kale salad (like this Kale and Chard Power Salad), specifically ones with dried fruit. So good.Print
- 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- 1/8 teaspoon sweet paprika
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup grapeseed oil (or any light flavored oil)
- good pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- Prepare your vinaigrette by placing all its ingredients in a small jar or container. Shake well until thoroughly combined. Store in fridge for up to 3 days.
