Recipe

I like to combine honey and maple syrup, not because I have an incredible sweet tooth, but because I like the different types of sweetness they provide. Add a little vinegar and thyme and you’ve got a sweet-tart dressing in less than 5 minutes.

Yield: Serves 4
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cooking time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients

For the Honey-Maple Vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 to 6 cups chopped red lettuce leaves, or any lettuce variety

Directions

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients.

2. Arrange the lettuce on individual salad plates and spoon the dressing over the top just before serving.

Notes

Make it a meal kit: Wash and dry the lettuce. Whisk together the vinaigrette. Store each separately in sealable containers or plastic bags, the lettuce for up to 3 days in the refrigerator, the vinaigrette for up to 1 week. Finish as directed.

Morph it: Make a double batch of the vinaigrette and morph the extra into a marinade and dipping sauce for chicken, turkey, salmon, or pork tenderloin. Use half as a marinade and the other half as a dipping sauce after cooking the protein.
