Maple Mustard Vinaigrette

Maple and stone-ground mustard partner beautifully together, especially in this homemade maple vinaigrette. Amber-colored maple syrup provides just enough sweetness to counter the intense acidity of apple cider vinegar for a smooth, gently sweet dressing. This vinaigrette is particularly nice served over winter and autumn salads of arugula, apples, pears, hazelnuts and roasted squash.
