I love to make my own dressings, that’s why I whipped up this easy Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing to add a little pep to my salad! What I love the most about this dressing is that you don’t need a blender to get it emulsified…just put all of the ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake it up!
Apple cider vinegar has really gotten popular in recent years because of it’s health benefits. I’m not sure how many of them are true, but I do know that it makes a tasty salad dressing…especially for Mason Jar Salads.
Another one of my tasty dressings is my Avocado Cilantro lime Low Carb Salad Dressing. That one does require a blender or a food processor. I love either one of these dressings on my tasty meal prep salads. Check out my list of Meal Prep Ideas that features that tasty salad!
The reason this dressing comes together so fast, is the addition of dijon mustard. If you do not add an emulsifier, it doesn’t matter how long you blend or shake the dressing, it will eventually separate.
For this apple cider vinegar dressing I used: ACV, olive oil, dijon mustard, sweetener, salt, pepper, and finely minced garlic.
The sweetener really helped balance out the acidity of the ACV. I used Swerve as my sweetener to make this dressing low carb, but you could use honey, sugar, or maple syrup instead.
- 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/2 cup Olive Oil
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 clove Garlic, finely minced
- 2 tablespoons Sweetener of choice
Add all ingredients to a jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine.
- Calorie count is for 3 tablespoons of dressing
- I used Swerve as my sweetener of choice but you could use honey, sugar, or maple syrup
