Spicy Maple White Wine Vinaigrette
I managed to sneak off to the farmers market last weekend to pick up a few goodies for the week. Columbus has a few year round markets which was a happy surprise! In November the vendors move indoors to evade the cold winter weather until spring. My favorite part is they relocate to a small indoor shopping mall so you get a happy dose of retail therapy along with seasonal produce! lol
My Chipotle Butternut Squash Panzanella Salad calls for a quality baguette, squash, and fresh arugula. The perfect canvas to drizzle this sweet and tangy Spicy Maple White Wine Vinaigrette over. I did a sugar detox and have since been using mostly natural sugar substitutes in place of refined white sugar. Honey, maple syrup, and local sorghum are at the top of the list.
Maple syrup pairs beautifully with the slightly oak chardonnay in this vinaigrette recipe. Dijon mustard adds a nice tanginess while lemon juice, fresh garlic, and a generous amount of red pepper flake round out the recipe. I used a mild white wine vinegar for a subtle punch. This Spicy Maple White Wine Vinaigrette recipe would make an excellent marinade for pork too. You could even reduce the amount of extra virgin olive oil and brush it on as a finishing glaze for baked chicken.
