Everyone is always looking for new dressing for their salad. The reason I was attracted to this one was because I had never used maple syrup in a salad dressing before. How bad can it be if it has maple syrup in it??? It’s delicious. This recipe was originally posted in 2011 when I discovered the recipe and has gone on to be an absolute staple in our house. Make it your new “go to ” salad dressing and you won’t be sorry. Using all staples that we all should have in our pantry. I also might add that for some reason this is one of the most popular recipes on my blog — so I figured I would re-post it for those of you who haven’t tried it yet.
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (I use Grey Poupon and probably heap those teaspoons)
2 teaspoons real Vermont Maple Syrup
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Canola or Vegetable oil
1/2 cup olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, and vinegar in a bowl. Slowly whisk in the oils, and season to taste with salt and pepper. I probably add about 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt and if it needs more I add a bit, and then a few turns of the pepper mill.
