I don’t know about you, but all I really need to be satisfied with a quick meal is a fantastic salad dressing. If you have one good dressing, even with the most plain ingredients it can feel like the salad has a new breath of life.
So on those mid summer nights when I want to grab something fast to eat without a takeout menu on hand I’ll just quickly visit my pantry and whip this dressing up in my Vitamix.
If I had to describe the taste of this dressing I would call it bright, tangy and crisp. With the perfect amount of sweetness from the maple syrup and tanginess from the Dijon mustard – you can’t go wrong.
In order to make this dressing a little bit more gut friendly I’ve reduced the amount of oil to a 1 part oil to 1 part vinegar ratio instead of the traditional 2 parts oil and 1 part vinegar formula.
This method was popular at the Natural Gourmet Institute, where I attended culinary school, since it’s more flavor with less fat for your liver to process! A double win!
You can expect this dressing to last you about 10-14 days in the refrigerator.
For those of you who want to check out how I use this dressing most often stay tuned for my Simple Grilled Romaine Hearts!
Can’t wait to hear what think of this one!
Happy cooking my friends.
