By BFM Staff
The key to a fresh and healthy salad that your family will actually want to eat is a home-made salad dressing. Below you will find a couple of our favorite recipes. Both of which are quick and easy and keep well in the refrigerator.
Combine in jar, and shake:
- ¼ c. maple syrup (slightly warmed in microwave)
- 1 ½ T. apple cider vinegar
- ¼ c. olive oil (I use a blend of olive and canola)
This dressing may be made in advance. Let it warm up a bit before using.
Great, without garlic, all-purpose salad dressing:
Combine into a small bowl:
- 3 T. minced shallots
- 3 T. red wine vinegar (sherry vinegar is yummy, balsamic too)
- ½ t. salt
- ½ t. sugar
Gradually whisk in:
- ½ c. olive oil
Set vinaigrette aside.
