I really like a syrup from souther Indiana called Shagbark Hickory Syrup. It is a little more smokey and it works great with Bourbon and lots of cracked black pepper and butter. Reduce it some to burn off the alcohol and pour it over a pork chop or NY strip.

I make a similar dressing, not vinaigrette though, for winter salads. I use mayo and sour cream as base, rice vinegar, Grade B maple syrup, and dijon. The important addition is juice of half a lemon. It adds freshness to the taste. The salad is greens, thinly sliced apple or pear, dried tart cherries, glazed walnuts and Roquefort cheese. Delish.

This sounds yummy, I think I'll make some for tonight's salad. There are some great maple recipes in "Cooking with Shelburne Farms" including a maple-ginger vinaigrette that is to die for. Thanks for reminding me of the versatility of this delicious treat.

We love maple syrup - I swap it in practically all recipes which call for honey...I even have it in coffee! This vinagrette sounds lush....... with some lemon thyme, the sky's the limit

I often make a similar vinaigrette using a bit of balsamic vinegar and fresh thyme. I'll have to try maple syrup in my coffee one of these days -- sounds delicious!

That's funny--we've been making that very vinaigrette for years, sometimes varying the vinegars.

That sounds like a perfect and easy to make dressing! May even make my boys eat salad. They love maple syrup. Since they like it so much, I use it to marinate chicken, with a combination of soy sauce, lime juice, and a touch of Jalapeno chilies. It is tasty. Will give your dressing a try. Thanks!

That looks delicious. I thought maple syrup in vinaigrette rang a bell, so I checked my ranch cookbook, and there is a recipe in there for baby romaine with maple vin, but it also contains some honey and cider vinegar. I'm going to try your version because I like the sound of the sherry and red wine vinegar. Thanks!
