  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use a fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color.  Olive oil gives this dish a great taste, and also can benefit you!
  • Balsamic vinegar – a great flavor addition with 0mg sodium per serving! I used a basic balsamic for this recipe, but you can use an aged one too.
  • Fresh garlic
  • Maple syrup: for natural sweetness without the refined sugar, I’d recommend using a natural maple syrup over sugar in this recipe.  Make sure you use pure maple syrup which has just 5mg of sodium per serving, and not ‘pancake syrup’ which can contain additives and preservatives.
  • Whole Grain Mustard – for a really nice flavor and texture. Using a good mustard makes all the difference, and I like the texture of whole grain mustard in this dressing.  The mustard contains the most sodium in this recipe (100mg for 1 teaspoon). If you can find a lower sodium mustard or Dijon, you can substitute it if you need to.
  • Orange Juice, or lemon juice
  • Black Pepper
