Maple Mustard Vinaigrette

Don’t tell them it’s Maple Mustard Vinaigrette! So many people judge this delicious dressing by its name and don’t give it a chance… crowd pleaser!

Some people (who will go un-named) will hardly touch salad unless it has a sweet dressing. Try this dressing!

Maple Syrup is one of the more wholesome sweeteners we can use.

It’s great on bowls full of greens and I would imagine as sauce for meats and cooked veggies as well.

Oooh, how about on salmon?!
