Maple Vinaigrette

Now that our farm is producing maple syrup in abundance, it’s become our favorite sweetener. This dressing is great all year long, but especially good with calvados (apple brandy) on fall salads that include apples, pears or beets.

Makes 1 cup

  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Calvados (optional)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne

Local ingredients: maple syrup, shallots

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and immersion blend until smooth.
