Balsamic Vinegar Maple & Red Onion Salad Dressing

The ingredients you will need for this are as follows:

3 cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
1/2 cup fine diced Red Onion (optional)
Sea Salt and Black Pepper for taste

The maple syrup really gives this balsamic a nice flavor enhancement compared to the store bought which usually is just refined sugar.  The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also a huge improvement over canola oil or simple no taste veg. oils.   The red onions are optional but do give the dressing a nice texture and added flavor contrast.

Most any vinaigrette based dressing is 3 parts oil to one parts vinegar this will make just over a liter of dressing and should last quite some time.  This may be one of the best dressings I have tried over the years well for a vinaigrette that is.

Preparation:  In a large bowl add the vinegar and the syrup and the red onions if you choose, slowly incorporate the olive oil and enjoy.  This can also be done the idiot proof way by dumping all ingredients into a sealable jar and shaking it until well combined.

Enjoy God Bless and Peace.
