Sweet ‘n Spicy Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette
Prep time
Total time
I've become addicted to this super-easy dressing. It has a sweet, spicy, and lightly creamy appeal that brightens most salads, yet is bold enough to stand up to heartier fall and winter greens.
Serves: about ¾ cup
  • ¼ cup pepper jelly (I used Guava Brava Jenkins Jelly)
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil or cold-pressed hemp oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage (your choice of type) or water
  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, glass jar, or blender, and whisk or blend until smooth.
  2. Let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. The flaxseed will cause it to thicken even more with time, so I recommend whisking it in just before eating if you are going to chill this vinaigrette in the refrigerator overnight.
