Ingredient notes

  • Mayo. I’m not a huge fan of classic mayo, so I use Vegenaise for this dressing. The good news is that you can use your favorite brand of mayo — classic or vegan, or even substitute the mayo with Greek yogurt.
  • Apple cider vinegar. This is my favorite vinegar to use in this dressing as it adds a sweet, tangy flavor. If you don’t have any on hand, white vinegar or white balsamic vinegar would be good substitutes.
  • Maple syrup. I love pure maple syrup for it’s flavor, but you may substitute it with honey or your favorite sweetener.
