Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

A couple of hard frosts in the Comox Valley recently have more or less finished off the most delicate of outdoor salad greens; but there’s still plenty of kale! If you’re on the fence about a raw kale salad, try drizzling the leaves with this balsamic vinaigrette. Add some lentil dal and serve with a glass of Γ‡a Beautage and all will be well!


INGREDIENTS Makes enough to dress a salad for 3-4 people

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp wholegrain mustard

Half a small clove of garlic, finely grated

Salt and pepper

 

METHOD

Place all of the ingredients in a glass mason jar and secure the lid tightly. Shake well to mix and emulsify. The vinaigrette will keep in the fridge for a week – just bring to room temp and shake well.
