Maitecita's Sweet Seventeen Salad Dressing

Today is Maite's seventeenth birthday, so in her honour I'm posting a delicious recipe she invented for a salad dressing that uses honey. I used it when Judy Schultz came to lunch a couple of weeks ago for her Edmonton Journal series "Dinner on the Farm".

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 clove garlic
2-3 tbsp honey
3-4 tbsp apple juice
dry basil to taste
salt to taste

In a small bowl add the vinegar to the olive oil and whisk together. Slowly whisk the honey into the vinegar and olive oil. Press 1 clove of garlic into the dressing, add the salt and dry basil to your liking. Pour over any salad; this dressing goes well with salads that include spinach, arrugula, cherry or grape tomatoes, jicama, or carrots.
