MMM Day 6: Maple Pecan Salad Dressing


To celebrate the warm weather (it’s over 50º!!), I think a light salad is in order for day 6 of March Maple Madness.

I’ve been enjoying this salad dressing over greens and roasted vegetables like sweet potatoes and beets.  Add a little goat cheese, some dried currants or whatever else suits your fancy and you’ve got yourself a meal!  Or a nice side salad at the very least.

Maple Pecan Salad Dressing
1/3 c. pecans, finely ground
1/3 c. olive oil
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 small clove garlic

Whisk together all ingredients except pecans and garlic until smooth.  Stir in garlic.  Stir in pecans.
