Spiced Apple Cider Dressing

A warm mug of apple cider in the cold winter months is so soothing and comforting. But did you know it's also tasty in dressing? This two-step recipe is simple to make with pantry ingredients you’re likely to have on hand. Drizzle it over a pan of simple roasted vegetables with slices of apple, or over a spinach salad topped with boiled eggs and crumbled bacon. It’s even tasty over baked sweet potatoes!


  • ½ cup spiced apple cider (from produce dept.)
  • ¾ cup preferred salad oil
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • Several turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a quart jar with lid.

  2. Shake to blend!

Note: This dressing is best if made at least one hour ahead. Will keep in refrigerator a few weeks, but serve warm or at room temperature.
