This is one of my very favorite recipes. Shante and I had a maple balsamic vinaigrette similar to this at a restaurant many years ago and loved it. It took us a couple of years to figure out a dressing that was equal to our memory. The secret was to just keep things simple, and that is part of the beauty of this recipe, it is so simple it should not be able to taste as good as it does. This is the kind of dressing that you will be soaking up with whatever is left on your plate even after your salad is gone.
What you will need:
- 1 tbsp of Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tbsp of Maple Syrup
- Baby Spinach
- Crushed Walnuts
- Dried Cranberries
This will be one of the easiest dishes that you make with one of the biggest pay-offs.
Combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and maple syrup in a small bowl. Whisk until they are well combined.
Drizzle the dressing over a plate of baby spinach, or whatever greens you prefer, sprinkle a few dried cranberries and some crushed walnuts.
Total time to make this was less than five minutes and you are now ready to indulge your mouth and invigorate your taste buds. Have a great day!
