Warm Apple Shrub Vinaigrette

We love this recipe because it works on salads, chilled or room temperature vegetables and/or grains (farro, barley, etc), and even roasted vegetables (try it on sweet potatoes!).

Our favorite way to use this dressing is with mixed greens, diced tart apples, thinly sliced raw fennel, crumbled chevre, and toasted pecans.
