Roasted Apple Vinaigrette [Immersion Blender]

This delicious vinaigrette is perfect for summer and fall salads. Roasting the apples and shallots really brings out the sweetness.

Roasted Apple Vinaigrette


  • 3 medium (475 g) apples, seeded, halved
  • 1 (65 g) shallot, peeled
  • 3 (40 g) dates, pitted
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup (120 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups (480 ml) water


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Place apples and shallot on a prepared baking sheet. Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until browned and tender.
  2. Place ingredients in the Vitamix Immersion Blending Jar or appropriately sized container. Submerge the immersion blender below the surface of the liquid, or as close to the ingredients as possible.
  3. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Move the immersion blender around, including up and down, to blend the ingredients for approximately 60 seconds or until desired consistency is achieved.

Chef's Notes

  • Fall salads are great to create. We love using blue cheese, toasted pecans, romaine, and fresh apple slices for our salad. Try this or mix and match your favorite salad ingredients.
  • A salad dressing can make or break a salad and this one makes it with just 6 simple ingredients, no added salt, and natural sweetness.
