Maple Balsamic & Dijon Vinaigrette

We often focus our blog posts on sweet treats with maple syrup (of course), so we thought a savoury recipe would mix things up a bit this month. There are so many combinations of pantry staples that can be blended together to make a unique salad dressing with maple syrup. Try experimenting with apple cider vinegar, citrus, different herbs and spices and fine pressed oils. Today we’re putting together a simple, easy salad dressing that combines balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and maple syrup.

πŸ˜‰ Fun Fact: This is Amanda’s go-to Maple Salad Dressing Recipe. She’s never written out the directions but somehow it comes out perfectly every. single. time.

The Recipe


  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Dark Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Freshly Cracked Pepper, to taste


  1. Measure all ingredients into a bowl or jar with a lid
  2. Whisk or shake well until fully incorporated (use a hand held blender or electric whisk for an even smoother consistency)
  3. Pour over salad and toss well
  4. Store excess in refrigerator for up to 1 week
