One healthy vinaigrette to dress your salad or fresh vegetables, is this homemade Honey-Cider Vinaigrette.  This dressing is a good combination of a quality extra-virgin olive oil, apple cider , salt and pepper. It’s important to use fresh quality ingredients since there are so few. The technique is important so your honey cider dressing becomes emulsified, thickened and blended. The oil and acid won’t come together by just stirring. When selecting acids they vary in strengths, so you need to experiment with the proportions.

  • Apple cider vinegar may help people lose weight and reduce belly fat.

  • ACV can improve your heart health.

I prefer using Organic Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar. You can purchase this online at Bragg Live Foods.Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Add the olive oil slowly to emulsify it this honey cider dressing.

Whisk the garlic, vinegar, honey and pepper first. Blend well. Slowly add the extra-virgin olive oil as you blend to emulsify it.
