Apple Vinaigrette Dressing

I just love salads.  I could eat them everyday.  I am always trying to switch up my salad dressings to keep things fresh and new.  When we went to Disney in October, we had an amazing apple vinaigrette dressing at Boma.  That recipe inspired me to create this Apple Vinaigrette Dressing.  Unlike most salad dressing recipes, mine contains no oil.  You can also whip it up in minutes!
