Tonight I made a delicious salad! I always keep dried fruit and nuts on hand so I can quickly whip up a delicious salad. I usually have romaine and this week had delicious green crisp apples.
What I love about salads is that you can come up with lots of combinations for toppings. I am a salad lover. Sometimes I want something light like this one. I have apples, sunflower seeds, cranberries and feta.
I also like heavier salads with meat, tortilla strips or croutons.
Another thing I love doing is making my own dressing. I have posted a ranch recipe that is a total hit! I thought I would post my favorite, apple vinaigrette. I actually prefer oil based dressing.
The apple vinaigrette is so good because you can enjoy it most of the year (or all of the year like I do!) and it is so easy to make!!
Here is the simple and easy recipe.
1/4c Oil (olive oil preferred but in a pinch you could use vegetable)
1/4c apple cider (or apple juice)
1/4c apple cider vinegar
2tsp Dijon mustard
Parsley to taste
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
You can change the juice, and add whatever herbs and spices you like to change it up! It’s fool proof!
I put this in a mason jar and shook it. It stores well in the fridge but I never have any leftover.
Hope you enjoy!
