Maple syrup is perhaps best known for being a sweet pancake and waffle topper, but it's also the star ingredient of Trader Joe's new Organic Maple Vinaigrette Dressing.
Just as the name suggests, the new Organic Maple Vinaigrette Dressing boasts a strong maple profile. In addition to organic maple syrup, the dressing also contains organic apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and orange juice. The result is a sweet and savory dressing that's surprisingly versatile. While it works well on a variety of salads, the vinaigrette also makes a great seasoning for sweet vegetables like roasted sweet potato or squash. Or, as Trader Joe's suggests, "truly flavorful treat, try drizzling just a bit over warm Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli."
