*Gala Apple:  You can use any medium-sized sweet apple you like.  We used a 7 oz. Gala apple (weight is before peeling and coring).

*Dijon Mustard/Vinegar/Ginger/Maple Syrup:  Our family loved this dressing; however, we each had preferences over the multiple kitchen tests.  Some preferred more Dijon mustard, while others liked more ginger and pops of vinegar tang. Others preferred more sweetness.  This recipe is a great base to start.  It is perfectly delicious as is in the recipe but can be customized to suit individual preferences.

*Sea Salt:  Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.

*Serving:  Makes approximately 2/3 cup of dressing.

*Storage:  Refrigerate and use within 5 days.
