This Maple Mustard Balsamic Dressing is incredibly versatile! It’s like a secret formula you can adapt to your liking. It tastes amazing not only as a salad dressing but also as a sauce for chicken and fish!
The best thing about this dressing is that it’s made with long-lasting ingredients. This means you can make a triple batch and keep it in the fridge for weeks without it spoiling. Just give it a quick shake before pouring and it’s ready to pour over your favorite salads.
You can even use a variation of the dressing in chicken dishes, such as this Maple Dijon Chicken Meal Prep Recipe.
Ingredients and Substitutions
- Maple Syrup — the maple flavor is so incredibly special, it’s my favorite sweetener for salad dressing. However, any other natural thick liquid sweetener works obviously: Honey, Agave Nectar, Coconut Nectar, etc.
- Dijon Mustard — this mustard has a mild and delicate taste, and it is the preferred mustard for salad dressings. I don’t recommend replacing it, but if you have to, any other mustard would work too.
- Balsamic Vinegar — Balsamic gives great flavor but you can balance the flavors with any other acid as well. Great alternatives are lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar.
- Flavorless Oil — Avocado Oil, Sunflower Oil, Any other oil
