An easy apple cider vinaigrette recipe using healthy ingredients like fresh apple, raw apple cider vinegar, and maple syrup. This dressing only takes five minutes to fix and includes two versions that you'll love: creamy and whisked. It's perfect for drizzling on top of leafy salads for a blend of sweet and tangy flavors.
One of my favorite sides to serve with dinner is a leafy salad piled with toppings from my pantry and fridge. It's an easy way to use up leftovers and sneak in extra servings of veggies. I like to rotate my toppings and homemade dressings based on the season (or...let's be honest, my cravings at the time). It feels like I ate blue cheese dressing almost every day this past summer.
During the fall and winter months, I often use sliced apples and grated sharp cheddar on my salads (love that combo), so I came up with this apple cider vinaigrette to pour on top. Fresh apples + apple cider vinegar = a no brainer, right?
I always keep a bottle of raw apple cider vinegar on hand for making homemade bone broth (it helps pull the minerals from the bones), so this dressing is a great excuse to use it more often.
