very special salad dressing

I love salad, and I love it even more in the summer.  This salad dressing is simple, but it's got a couple of secret ingredients that really take it over the top and make it extra special:  maple syrup and shallots!

I made this salad with grapefruit sections.  Perfect for a warm summer day!

Here's the recipe!

Oooh lala salad dressing

5 tbsp olive oil
2 tbs balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper
1/2 shallot, finely chopped
1 tsp maple syrup

Combine all the ingredients and whisk well.  Add salad leaves and toss well to coat.
