Magical Applesauce Dressing

Summary

This dressing uses applesauce to emulsify the ingredients and produce a surprisingly thick vinaigrette that is virtually fat-free! This dressing is slightly sweeter than some vinaigrettes, so try it as is first, and then play with some of the seasonings if you like.

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsTotal Time5 mins

Ingredients

 ¼ cup organic applesauce (unsweetened)
 1 tsp organic miso (mellow yellow or chickpea)
 ¼ tsp salt (optional)
 ¼ tsp ground cumin
  tsp ground cinnamon
 ground black pepper (optional, to taste)
 2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
 ¾ tsp dijon mustard
 1 tbsp pure maple syrup (optional, or date syrup)
 1 splash water (if needed)

Directions

1

Using an immersion blender and deep cup (if using a regular blender, you may need to double the batch for enough blending volume), combine all ingredients (starting with 3/4 tsp dijon and 1 tbsp maple syrup if using).

2

Puree until very smooth.

3

If you’d like a thinner dressing, simply add a couple of teaspoons of water and blend through again.

4

Once the consistency is just as you like it, taste and adjust seasonings.

5

Serve, or store in a covered jar in the fridge for 1–2 weeks.

Chef's Notes

Yield: ½ cup

Serving Suggestions
This dressing is great with a richer salad and meal since it has some acidity and tang to cut through the heavier components. For instance, try on a salad topped with avocado and nuts, or on a salad alongside a nut-based veggie burger or pasta sauce.
