Apple Cider Salad Dressing Recipe

One of the most frustrating things about trying to eat healthier is that most commercial salad dressings contain so much sugar, fat and unhealthy additives that they seem to negate all of the benefits of opting for a salad.

Personally, I still think that even with those issues, the benefits of increasing your vegetable intake is still a win. But if you’re ready to take your healthy eating goals to the next level, opting for a healthy salad dressing is definitely a great next step.

This apple poppyseed dressing is a personal favorite. It’s tangy, sweet and has that little bite of acidity to keep things interesting. It takes even your most basic salad combination and elevates it to a restaurant-quality salad that you’ll find yourself craving.

I personally love it on a simple spinach salad with some chopped fruit and veggies and maybe a bit of crunch from toasted nuts, seeds or croutons, but if you have a favorite salad combination, try it out on that.

If you salad will pair well with apples, chances are it will pair beautifully with this homemade vinaigrette.

This apple poppyseed dressing lasts for 2 weeks in the fridge, if kept in a sealed container like a mason jar or salad dressing bottle.

If you want to make this apple dressing a bit creamier, you can place it in a blender (preferably a small, smoothie-style blender) and blitz for a couple minutes until the dressing emulsifies and takes on a mayonnaise-like color.
