EasyMaple Vinaigrette Recipe Highlights

What is the difference between a boring salad and an amazing one? THE DRESSING…This Maple Vinaigrette is anything but boring!!!

It has just the right amount of sweetness to curb the flavor of the vinegar and lemon, and it’s super easy to make. It literally takes a minute to make.

I don’t usually buy store-bought salad dressings. I think that nothing beats whipping up a fresh batch of homemade dressing just the way you like it and controlling what goes into it. Plus, it tastes 100x better with fresh ingredients.

You can use this dressing on just about any salad you can imagine. I love to dress my Copycat Chicken fil A Superfood salad – my latest obsession – with this Maple Vinaigrette.

Storing

I love to keep the maple vinaigrette in a mason jar in the fridge. It will keep for up to 2 weeks. Before each use, just give it a big shake since the oil and vinegar will likely separate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my homemade vinaigrette solidify?

Olive oil is made with olives, and their skin has natural waxes that protect the fruit as it grows. This harmless natural wax is what make the vinaigrette solidify at low temperature. So this solidifying process is completely natural and doesn’t affect quality.

How to fix a solidified vinaigrette?

Let it sit on the counter at room temperature for about 10 – 15 minutes, then give it a good shake. If you are in a rush, you may also run the jar (with the lid on) under warm water to help expedite the process. It will be good as new!
