How To Make Maple-Dijon Dressing

  • In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the dijon and oil, until creamy and emulsified.
  • Add the maple syrup and water, whisking until combined.
  • Optionally, add a little salt and pepper to taste.

And now you’re ready to serve!

How to Store Leftovers

If making ahead, or making a large batch, keep the dressing stored in the refrigerator for up to 6 days in an airtight container.

Serving Suggestions

This simple dressing is super versatile can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Salad: Use it as intended for leafy green salads. I love it with fresh tomatoes, dried berries and raisins, and sometimes diced carrots and sunflower seeds overtop.
  • Marinade: It’s great as a marinade for veggies before grilling or roasting. Simply drizzle the dressing overtop and let set for an hour or so, mixing every now and then to coat. Or brush it on the vegetables while cooking.

    Olive oil is very healthy in this amount and actually helps the body be able to utilize some of the vitamins in the salad.
