Cane Syrup Vinaigrette
PREP TIME: 30 Minutes
SERVES: 2 ½ Cups

I love the flavor of cane syrup. So it’s natural that I would create a vinaigrette dressing using this wonderful ingredient. Most people are confused as to the flavor of cane syrup and often compare it to molasses, however, nothing could be further from the truth. Molasses is a much stronger and darker syrup and is used in dishes such as gingerbread and spice cakes. Cane syrup is more of a breakfast syrup.
