Why buy dressings from the store when you came make them so easily from scratch? This Simple Maple Vinaigrette takes about 5 minutes to whip together, and adds great flavor to your salad or other vegetables.
This maple vinaigrette has become one of my main go-to dressings. I most recently featured it here in the Baby Kale Salad with Maple Vinaigrette. I also use it in my Grilled Beets & Sautéed Chard recipe found in the Collards & Kale Cookbook. I figured it was worth posting here as a stand-alone recipe, as I figure I’ll be pointing toward it in other recipes down the road, too.
The sweetness in the dressing is a nice contrast to the bitterness in greens like kale and arugula. It also is a great way to dress up cabbage. How many times have you used half a head of cabbage and wondered what to do with the rest? Chop up extra cabbage in thin slices, combine it with some of this maple vinaigrette, and you’ve got a nice little side dish with crunchy sweetness.
Give this maple vinaigrette a try, and let me know how you use it. New ideas always welcomed!Print
