A wonderfully unique vinaigrette inspired by the scents of breakfast cooking in a bed & breakfast inn. Created especially for Wolf River Apple Salad with Grilled Chicken, but yummy on all sorts of salads.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup French press coffee or strong coffee (brewed and cooled)
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon hot sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Blend until well combined.
