This recipe comes from Taste of Home magazine. It is absolutely one of the best salad dressings I have ever had. There is something about the combination of the maple syrup with the mustard, garlic and lemon that gives this sweet flavored dressing a wonderfully subtle kick. It is good on any mixture of greens. It is good with chicken meat or bacon and absolutely great with apples or pears. Experiment with different combinations and find your own special salad to showcase this dressing. It will keep in the refrigerator for several days so enjoy it again and again. Olivia and I have both made it and we both love it. You will too.
