Sherry Apple Juice Vinaigrette Notes

I love vinaigrettes and make all kinds. This is one I made up that I love.

  • 1 tablespoon grated onion, or shallot with it's juice
  • 2 large cloves garlic, crushed or grated
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, or brown grained mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey, or sugar
  • 1 packet splenda, optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup good quality sherry wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 rounded teaspoon herbs de provence, or tarragon
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
Serves / Yields

2 cups, approximately

Preparation Instructions

Place all of the ingredients, except the oil, in a 2 cup jar with a lid. Put on lid and shake. Let sit 5 minutes to bloom onions. Then, add the cup of olive oil. Shake well, until emulsified. Do not overshake or the olive oil taste bitter.

Important: the fresh garlic in this dressing must be kept refrigerated, unless you are going to eat within a week. Keeps 3-4 weeks in frig.

Helpful Hints

I like my salads with romaine, iceberg, slaw mix, and red onions. Then, as needed, seedless cukes and other stuff. The slaw mix adds a nice crunch with added vitamins and minerals. I usually make enough for 3 salads and save the rest wrapped in paper towels inside a plastic bag for the next two nights.
