Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Serve on any mixed green salad. Nutrition Bonus: Bottled salad dressings
usually contain hydrogenated (artificially saturated) oils. Olive oil is high
in monounsaturated fat, which does not raise "bad" LDL blood
cholesterol as saturated fat does.

Makes about 1/3 cup

2 tbsp olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp pure maple syrup
2 tsp grainy mustard
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a small bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, salt and
pepper until blended. (Alternatively, combine ingredients in a small
jar, secure the lid and shake.)
