What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?

You’ve probably seen apple cider vinegar being used in cooking or for home remedies. But what is it made of exactly? It’s an acidic liquid that’s produced from fermented apple cider. Lucky for us, fermentation produces a healthy dose of good bacteria and probiotics. On the other hand, it gives a fruity and zesty flavor that makes it great for soups, sauces, and various beverages.

How To Make Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing

This vinaigrette couldn’t be any easier to make! Just mix together these few ingredients and you’ll have this dressing made in minutes. Here’s what you need:

Olive oil – I like to use extra virgin olive oil for that crisp, clean flavor.Apple Cider Vinegar – Use organic apple cider vinegar with the “Mother.” This is sold in most supermarkets, but you can also buy it on Amazon.Honey – Any type of honey will work, just make sure it’s in liquid form so that it mixes well with the rest of the ingredients.Dijon Mustard – Dijon mustard (rather than yellow mustard) has a bolder, more distinctive flavor profile.Garlic – One minced garlic clove is all you need.Salt & Pepper – Sprinkle a little of each to taste.

How To Store Apple Cider Vinaigrette

This apple cider vinaigrette can last up to 7 days if stored properly in the fridge. Just make sure to seal it in an airtight jar. And when you want to use it, give it a shake to blend the ingredients if they’ve separated.
