Recipe type: Lunch or Dinner
Serves: 1½ cups
  • 1 Tablespoon onion, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup apple cider*
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar*
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar*
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil**
*Alternate ingredients
  • 1 cup apple balsamic vinegar can be substituted for the apple cider, apple cider vinegar, and balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup flavored olive oil (such as a blood orange oil) can be substituted for the extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Mix together all ingredients except the olive oil. This can be done with an immersion blender for 30 seconds, a regular blender, or shaking well in a jar.
  2. Slowly add olive oil in a steady stream as the ingredients are blending. If using a jar instead of a blender, add olive oil and shake well for a minute or two.
  3. Place dressing into a lidded jar and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Pour over salads, vegetables, or use as a meat marinade.
  5. Use within 2 weeks.
Don't have an immersion blender? Combine all ingredients into a lidded container and shake well. Be sure and shake again well before serving.
