Maple-Mustard Vinaigrette

Maple-Mustard Vinaigrette

by Pam on May 13, 2013

We had friends bringing us fresh razor clams and trout they freshly caught on Sunday. We made a huge clam[1] & trout feast along with a beautiful salad topped with this maple-mustard vinaigrette and fresh bread. I really loved how sweet and tangy this vinaigrette was. It paired great with the salad I served and was a big hit with everyone.

Whisk together the canola oil, olive oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, until well combined. Taste and re-season if needed. Set aside for at least 30 minutes for flavors to mingle. Whisk well before drizzling on top of your salad. Enjoy.

Grilled Stone Fruit Salad with Honey Goat Cheese Dressing

Grilled peaches and plums served over baby greens with walnuts and a sweet honey goat cheese dressing, this salad is light and delicious utilizing some of my favorite summer fruits.

While I hate to think of summer as having an expiration date, the fact
that it’s coming close to the end has me savoring every last moment. I’m a little excited about the change of seasons, but I always mourn the end of summer. So I’m trying to enjoy every last bit of summer’s bounty.

Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops – Great Recipe, No Bones About It

This shining example of what a few well-placed ingredients
can do to a plain piece of meat reminded me of a couple very important things.
By the way, if you’re new to cooking, being reminded of stuff is one of the
best parts.


First of all, it had me recalling the old, “if it doesn’t
have a bone in it, it’s really not a chop.” Of course, search engines being
what they are, we were forced to use the oxymoronic “boneless, center-cut pork
chops” instead of the traffic stunting “pork medallions.” Not a big deal, but
worth mentioning in case you’re ever backed into a corner during a heated,
butchery-related water cooler debate.

Secondly, I remembered I need to redo that demo I did for
another website many years ago, on how to cut your own boneless, center-cut
pork chops, thereby saving some cash. It’s a quick and simple trick, and one
I’m sure many of you will remind me I forgot about in a few weeks.

Anyway, the glossy glaze is really easy, and while there’s
no starch or extra butter involved, it reduces quickly to a thick, rich,
sweet-tart apple syrup. The rosemary and pepper flakes were the perfect accents
for me, but this is a technique that begs for your own personal touches. I hope
you give this simple and very tasty pork “chop” recipe a try soon. Enjoy!


Ingredients for 6 chops:
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp butter
6 boneless center-cut pork chops (6-8 oz each)
salt and pepper to taste
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups apple cider
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp minced rosemary
pinch of red chili flakes
