Apple Vinaigrette

Becca here with a quick & easy vinaigrette recipe that's great for any season, especially if one of your New Years' Resolutions was to eat more healthy greens!  Salad dressings are one of my favorite things to make, especially when we have guests.  We actually have several different dressing recipes you can browse by clicking on 'salads' on the right sidebar.  I like to serve the toppings on the side, so everyone can add their favorites and make their own custom salad.  This apple vinaigrette pairs great with ingredients that are available even in the cool weather months of fall and winter; I served it with an organic spring mix, apple, roasted pecans, and dried cranberries.  Enjoy! 

Apple Vinaigrette

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (I used unfiltered raw)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup apple juice
3-4 fresh basil leaves
2 teaspoons honey
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients in food processor or blender; pulse a few times, until combined.  Refrigerate any leftovers!
