The key to this dressing is using high quality ingredients.

Madhava honey is slightly sweet, organic and sustainably sourced. I also love that Madhava honey is a family owned company that has been around for almost 50 years, which you can read more about here!

This super easy dressing is perfect for salads of any season.  It’s light and refreshing for summer.  However, it also lends itself well to fall and winter salads because it has the sweetness of honey and the tartness of apple cider vinegar. You can also add a little bit of Dijon mustard for some depth of flavor.

I really enjoy this recipe because it’s a great switch up to a balsamic vinaigrette. If I do opt for a balsamic vinegar, I opt for Madhava.  This super simple recipe is like an oil and vinegar dressing with a new twist. 

Honey Apple Cider Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe

easy honey apple cider vinaigrette dressing

  • 3/4 c Madhava avocado oil
  • 1/4 c Madhava extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 c. Madhava apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 c. Madhava honey
  • 1 Heavy dash of Black Pepper
  • 2 generous pinches Sea Salt

To make this dressing, simply whisk together all of the ingredients in a bowl or jar. I like to use a jar so that I can store any leftover dressing in the fridge. This dressing will last for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.  If you crave a hint of citrus, try fresh lemon juice.

Why I love Madhava


It’s Madhava’s mission to get clean ingredients and pantry staples to tables across the country, redefining standards of purity across all the categories.

I’ve used Madhava’s extra virgin olive oil for years. It has a lower smoke point, which makes it great for dipping, dressings, baking, slow roasting.  As a Sicilian myself, I love their Italian roots.

It’s single sourced from the clean soil and pristine growing conditions of Tunisia, packed in Sicily by a 5th generation Sicilian olive oil master who tastes and tests each lot himself ensure quality and authenticity.  It’s amazing the pride that goes into their products.

I was thrilled to try Madhava apple cider vinegar because it’s new to the market.  It’s made with organic fresh-pressed apples sourced from Italy.  Plus, I know it’s clean because it’s unpasteurized, unfiltered, and raw. 

While avocado oil is ideal for high smoke points, I still wanted to use it.  The blend of the two gave a nice flavor.  Like their other oils, the avocado oil it is the only Avocado Oil with a Purity Award from The Clean Label Project.

Honestly, the list goes on and on — Madhava is clean and delicious.  Plus, it’s available on Amazon here!
