Sweet Basil Vinaigrette

Sweet Basil Vinaigrette

I have a sweet tooth, so I lean on sweet salad dressings. Today, I’ll share this Sweet Basil Vinaigrette recipe with you. The secret to making this vinaigrette sweet is apple juice. The apple juice gives it a light sweetness. Not too much, but just right. However, You must remember to read your labels. It needs to be unsweetened, 100% apple juice.
