"This is so unbelievably simple and delicious. Loved the maple sweetness with the traditional oil and balsamic mix. I served this over a salad of spring greens, bacon, bocconcini, and tomatoes and it was amazing. I love that this makes a lot so you can keep it in your fridge for use the following week."
