After several years of ordering the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad at Paradise Bakery every single chance I was given; I decided to make my own version. Over the past month, I have made several different apple vinaigrettes and this one was my favorite. The dressing is sweet and a little bit tart. It is just thick enough to coat the salad and provide extra flavor in every bite.
Honey Apple Vinaigrette
1/4 cup apple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 garlic powder
pinch of salt
1/3 cup light flavored olive oil
1-3 tablespoons honey, adjust to taste (the original version is a very sweet dressing, but I actually preferred it a bit more tart)
Whisk together all ingredients except the honey. Taste the dressing and add honey as desired. Pour the dressing into a jar and refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
