  • In a small bowl, add olive oil, apple cider vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste (I like 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper). Whisk to combine.


  1. Apple cider vinegar: For the best flavor, look for a raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar such as Bragg brand (that's the one I always buy).
  2. Granulated sugar: Use less or omit entirely if desired.
  3. Dijon mustard: This is the emulsifying agent that binds the dressing together. Maille is a French brand of mustard and my favorite.
  4. Yield: This salad dressing recipe makes about 1 cup of dressing (16 tablespoons), enough for 8 servings, 2 tablespoons each. 
  5. Storage: Store extra dressing covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  6. Make ahead: The dressing can be mixed up to 3 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.
