This Fig Balsamic Dressing is infused with vanilla and is perfect for fall salads: pear salads or apple salads. Vegan and Gluten-free.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fig jam
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, (optional) finely minced, or sub 1 tablespoon finely minced shallot


  1. Whisk all ingredients together – olive oil, balsamic vinegar, vanilla, fig jam, salt pepper, and optional garlic clove, in a small bowl, taking care to break up all the jam bits.
  2. Taste, if you prefer it sweeter, add more fig jam to taste. Add more salt to taste.
  3. Makes 1/3 cup. Enough to coat 5 ounces of salad greens. I usually make a double batch.


Store in the fridge for up to 10 days.
