Everyone needs a classic vinaigrette recipe, but who says it has to be boring? A couple tablespoons of maple syrup make this one well-suited for salads (we recommend a green that’s hearty and slightly bitter, like kale), but also drizzling over chicken or pork. Many vinaigrette recipes will ask you to use a whisk to combine the ingredients and that’s totally okay to do in this recipe. But if you have a jar, we recommend using that instead. Giving the ingredients a vigorous shake emulsifies them like whisking does, but is twice as easy. Store the dressing, covered, in the fridge for up to 1 week. If the oil congeals in the fridge, let it come to room temperature before using it.
