Maple Dijon Vinaigrette

This maple Dijon vinaigrette has basically rocked my world over the past couple of weeks.  I actually made it back in the fall for the first time to dress my sweet and salty harvest salad but I’ve been making a batch a couple times a week and eating it on salads for lunch and marinating chicken in it for dinner.  I recently committed myself to eating more leafy greens (other than romaine lettuce) and this dressing it helping me to stay on track.  To say that my favorite [new] lunch salad – chopped kale, crumbled gorgonzola or feta, sliced almonds, and a chopped pear all drizzled with this dressing – has been something I totally look forward to every day, it’s got to be something pretty excellent.

Maple Dijon Vinaigrette

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: about 1/2 cup

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • Up to 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
