Here is one tasty choice for a delicious maple balsamic vinaigrette.
The amounts in this recipe will be enough for about 6 salads.
In a bowl, mix together 2 Tablespoons of Dijon mustard, 1/3 cup of plain yogurt. We like to use organic yogurt with probiotics for the health benefits.
Add 3 teaspoons of maple syrup, 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, and 1 teaspoon of dried or fresh oregano.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and mix together with a fork.
Last, add 1/2 cup of olive oil and mix until creamy.
Be sure to taste the final product. If you like a sweeter dressing, add more maple syrup (about another teaspoon at a time).
If you like it creamier, add more yogurt.
Keep it covered in the fridge for a week and use as needed.
