Apple Cider Vinaigrette Recipe

This apple cider vinaigrette is so much more than a way to sneak that overnight sensation, apple cider vinegar, into your daily routine. If you believe what you read online, it balances pH, detoxes the liver, lowers blood sugar levels, fights bacterial infections, and a multitude of other beneficial things. We can’t speak to all that. But we can, however, vouch for the taste of this easy, slightly sweet, subtly tangy, entirely apple-y cider vinaigrette recipe. It’s spectacular drizzled on salads of all sorts—especially butter lettuce, thinly sliced red onion, and crumbled blue cheese. This recipe has been updated.
