By BFM StaffBFM-logo-SINCE-1988

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.

Maple Dressing

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.
