Honey Apple Vinaigrette recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
After several years of ordering the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad at Paradise Bakery every single chance I was given; I decided to make my own version.

Over the past month, I have made several different apple vinaigrettes and this one was my favorite. The dressing is sweet and a little bit tart. It is just thick enough to coat the salad and provide extra flavor in every bite.

    We have a chain bakery in our area named Panera Bread. They serve a Fuji Apple Chicken Salad that I adore! I order it every time we go. This is getting pinned and put on my must try list! Thanks Mary! You've had some rain out your way this week. Hope you are not affected by the flooding.

    This dressing sounds fantastic and would go on so many varieties of salads. Great for summertime Mary! Glad you perfected it. It's always so nice to replicate a dish you love at home. And usually, it's even better than the original.

    This is excellent. I add a Fuji apple, shallot, a dash of lemon juice and fiddle with the oil and liquids to keep it from being too thick with the apple added. It is as close to Panera’s Fuji Apple salad dressing as I could make. The concentrated apple juice and honey seem to be the key.5 stars

      More or less, Kathi. The reason I write “apple concentrate” is because there are also brands of apple juice that add other ingredients/sugars/etc.; those won’t balance well in the vinaigrette.
