Summer Salads: Maple Vinaigrette

This Maple Vinaigrette is sweet, tangy and so delicious!  Drizzle over your favourite green salad.  This salad is especially good with chunks of fresh mango and feta cheese!

On May Long Weekend we went to stay at my parent’s house on the lake. We were hoping for a warm and fun weekend, and we were not disappointed! For the first time in recent memory, we did not have a snowfall on May Long!  Whew. Instead,  we were treated to spectacular warm weather and fabulous food!  What a great time!  My mom, as usual, fed us well!  The highlight for me, was this Maple Vinaigrette Salad. So so good.  A flavour explosion in my mouth!  Really.

This dressing is sweet and tangy and full of delicious maple flavour.  Serve it over a simple green salad, and toss in fresh chunks of mango, feta cheese and pecans.  Such a good salad.

Recipe Tips:

  • This recipe makes a big batch of dressing, so you can keep it for up to a week in the fridge.
  • Use real maple syrup, not the fake stuff!

  1. One of my favourite summer salads is very similar to yours. Due to a nut allergy I can’t add the pecans so I use hulled sunflower seeds (and add some fresh strawberries too). Truly delicious! I’ve been on the lookout for a homemade Maple Balsamic dressing so I was thrilled to see you had one!!! I can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks!
