Fresh Apple Cider Infusion Salad Dressing

Creating an apple cider dressing using real apple cider is a wonderful idea! Here's a simple recipe for an apple cider vinaigrette that you can use to dress salads or other dishes.


  • 1/2 cup real apple cider

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Reduce Apple Cider: Heat the apple cider over medium heat in a small saucepan. Let it simmer and reduce to about 1-2 tablespoons. This will concentrate the flavor.

  2. Cool the Reduced Cider: Allow the reduced apple cider to cool completely. This will be a concentrated apple flavor that will enhance the dressing.

  3. Prepare the Dressing: In a mixing bowl, combine the reduced apple cider, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, and honey or maple syrup. Whisk together until well combined.

  4. Emulsify the Dressing: Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while continuously whisking the mixture. This will help the dressing emulsify and come together.

  5. Season: Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust sweetness and acidity by adding more honey or apple cider vinegar.

  6. Refrigerate: Transfer the dressing to an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

  7. Serve: Shake or whisk the dressing before using. Drizzle over your favorite salads or use as a marinade for meats or vegetables.

Enjoy your apple cider vinaigrette on salads or as a flavorful marinade!
