Apple Cider and Honey Vinaigrette

homemade salad dressing

apple cider and honey vinaigrette Everyone wants to spend less money, make healthier choices and eat better tasting food, especially in January. If not all three, there must be one on the list that you consider when it comes to cooking. Making your own salad dressing addresses all three.

I eat plenty of salad. But I buy zero bottled dressings. I can't remember the last time I did either. While I do buy some condiments and sauces that are not worth the time and/or money that goes into making them, salad dressing is not one of them. It's quick, can be made with common ingredients you already have at home, and if you have a jar and the capability of shaking it, you have the power to making great tasting dressing.

And that's not to mention that a homemade dressing, like this delicious apple cider and honey vinaigrette, contains no fillers, emulsifiers, corn syrup, or anything else.

This dressing stars two health rockstars - apple cider vinegar and honey. You can find both of these locally in Vermont. Apple cider vinegar is attributed to numerous benefits, including weight loss, detoxification, and the break up of mucus in the lymphatic system. Honey is believed to act as an antibacterial and antifungal while helping to prevent diseases, ulcers and gastrointestinal problems.
