Maple Dijon Vinaigrette Recipe

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have already seen my salad pictures. I've been obsessed with this homemade salad dressing and therefore have been eating more salad than usual, not that that's a bad thing. Plus, I don't have a microwave at work so that limits me a tad. This is not my recipe, I actually got it from the Nature's Emporium Youtube Chanel, which you must follow because they have some amazing recipes on there!

Here's what you'll need:
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard 
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
I haven't tried switching out olive oil for a different oil or apple cider vinegar for lemon juice, I'm sure you could though. I also don't always measure when making this dressing. Sometimes I'll add more maple syrup, sometimes more acv or dijon, play with it.

You basically combine all of the ingredients in a mason jar, or whatever other container you have, and shake it up. Difficult huh? ;)

TA-DA! So easy. Serve over greens, quinoa, pasta, whatever you like. I love how this dressing is sweet and tangy all at the same time. For the record, I've also tried the sweet potato recipe (minus the cheese curds), from the video, and it was spectacular.

Let me know what your favourite homemade salad dressing recipes are below and/or if you give this one a try.

  1. Looks delicious! I will have to try this as it is all things I already have. One thing I really love in salad dressing is shallot. It's like an onion but milder and more delicious!

    1. Shallots are genius!!! That would totally kick this dressing up a notch, thanks for the idea

  2. Sounds delicious! I've never tried maple syrup in a dressing before, until now :) x

  3. I love making homemade dressings. This sounds delicious!

    1. I've just found your Honey Mustard Dijon Vinaigrette Dressing, will totally be making that. Sounds similar so I can only assume it'll be just as delicious xo
