A couple tablespoons of maple syrup make this vinaigrette well-suited for drizzling over chicken or pork, as well as salads. For the latter, we recommend a green that’s hearty and slightly bitter, like kale.

Many vinaigrette recipes call for a whisk to combine ingredients—and that’s totally OK for this—but we recommend using a jar instead. Giving the ingredients a vigorous shake emulsifies them like whisking does, but is twice as easy and less messy. 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.


  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid, and then cover and shake until well combined. Serve on chicken or pork, or toss with your favorite salad mix.
