An unusual salad dressing with seasonal flair.

Sweet but with a little snap to it and the indefinable note of pure maple, this is wonderful over a salad of mesclun greens tossed with a little slivered purple cabbage and a finely diced crisp tart apple, such as a Winesap.


1/3 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup mild vegetable oil, such as canola


  1. Combine all ingredients except oil in blender or food processor. Pulse to chop onion.
  2. With machine running, drizzle in oil, process until well blended.  Store the dressing, refrigerated, in a glass bottle, and shake before using. Makes about 1 cup; serves 16.
