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.

    Had to smile at this~breakfast the other morning was pancakes with spice pear butter hot from the cooking pot and a side of sausage with fresh roasted coffee. I had to make it all, but it made me dream for a few minutes that I was tucked away in a beautiful bed & breakfast. Until the kids started complaining. *sigh*
