You're going to love my recipe for apple cider vinaigrette because it's ready in just five minutes, and the only tool you'll need is a mason jar.
That's right, this salad dressing can be made and mixed in a single mason jar!
What size jar to use
For this recipe, you'll need one 16 ounce jar with a tight sealing lid (or other similarly sized sealing container).
If you don't want to mix your salad dressing in a mason jar, don't fret. You can easily blend your ingredients in a bowl with a whisk.
Apple cider vinegar is the star of this dressing, making it tangy and light. The addition of dijon mustard acts as an emulsifier.
This means that it helps the other ingredients, like oil and vinegar, to bind together instead of instantly separate.
This dressing will separate when sitting in the refrigerator for long periods of time, so give it a quick shake just before serving.
While there isn't enough mustard in the dressing to taste "mustard-y", it does add just a bit of spice.
A hint of honey also helps to even out the tangy and spicy flavors we've added so far. Want a sweeter dressing? Feel free to add more honey to taste.
