Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Making your own salad dressings is not as complicated as I had thought it might have been when I first decided, no more bottled salad dressing for us. And of course, I should have known, but that is what usually comes to the forefront of our thinking when we make a change until we realize that all the generations that ate before us, did not eat complicated food, just healthy food.

Salad dressing is in that category. The important thing to remember about salad dressing is that it is meant to bring the flavors of all those healthy vegetables together, rather than being the main flavor in the salad.

This one is piquant, easy and easily made from pantry staples.
