In a bowl whisk together ½ cup applesauce, 1/3 cup EVOO, 2 T. vinegar (maple balsamic is lovely with this as is pear but something like tarragon or rosemary vinegar is good in this as well), 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. ground black pepper. This vinaigrette will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Makes 1 cup.
