Vanilla Fig Dressing- a delicious fall-inspired dressing perfect for fall salads, pear salads or apple salads. Vegan and Gluten-free.


  1. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  3. 2 tablespoons fig jam
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  5. 1/41/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  7. 1 garlic clove, (optional) finely minced, or sub 1 tablespoon finely minced shallot


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.

Taste, if you prefer it sweeter, add more fig jam to taste. Add more salt to taste.

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.
