Do you enjoy homemade salad dressings? I sure do, and think it’s fun to make salad dressings from scratch using ingredients found in our kitchen. I’ve experimented with many salad dressings over the years, and have posted a LOT of them on this blog.

Today I want to share a recipe for apple cider vinaigrette, which can be easily made in a few minutes. The vinaigrette tastes great on spinach salads or mixed green salads. Typically a vinaigrette combines oil and some type of vinegar. The vinegar used in this recipe is apple cider vinegar. Other fresh ingredients and spices are added to give the vinaigrette extra flavor and slight sweetness. I really think you will enjoy this salad dressing. Here’s how easy it is to make:

What Ingredients Will I Need To Make Apple Cider Vinaigrette?

The ingredients needed are olive oil, apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, maple syrup and salt and pepper.  These are fairly common ingredients, and because I keep them on hand, it’s easy to whip up a batch of vinaigrette for salads.

The ingredients are gathered to make apple cider vinaigrette.

Mixing The Vinaigrette

It is so easy to make apple cider vinaigrette! Place all of the ingredients in a small bowl or in a jar or container that has a tight fitting lid. If you are using a bowl for mixing, whisk the ingredients together well, until the vinaigrette has emulsified. This means the oil and vinegar and other ingredients are thoroughly combined.

If you are mixing the vinaigrette in a jar or container, place the ingredients into the container and seal with the lid. Vigorously shake the sealed jar until the oil, vinegar and other ingredients have emulsified, and are completely combined..

The apple cider vinaigrette is mixed, then poured into a cruet for pouring onto salad.

Ready To Use!

Once the apple cider vinaigrette is combined, it can be used immediately to drizzle on a favorite green salad. You can also refrigerate the vinaigrette (covered) in the refrigerator until ready to use. TIP: If using AFTER refrigerating, remove the jar from the fridge a couple minutes before using. Shake the jar (or whisk in the bowl) really well before drizzling on the salad.

That’s it! You made apple cider vinaigrette from scratch! We especially enjoy this vinaigrette used to compliment a Spinach, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad (shown below). It’s really tasty.

This salad dressing tastes wonderful on a spinach or mixed green salad.

I love making homemade salad dressings, and hope you will enjoy trying this easy recipe! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I sincerely hope you will come back again soon. Take care, and have a wonderful day.
