    Chevy’s Chipotle Salad Dressing Copycat Recipe

    We don’t tend to dine at a lot of chains, however, one restaurant I can’t get enough of is Chevy’s. Chris and I used to frequent Chevy’s in Columbia, but not long after we moved, it closed. There also weren’t any in Kansas City. I was delighted when we moved to St. Louis and found a handful of them. What’s so great about Chevy’s? Their apple Chipotle Vinaigrette. Seriously amazing.

    My mom would be beyond surprised to hear that I crave salad now. This Chipotle Vinaigrette is fresh and slightly sweet – with a kick. With the nearest Chevy’s 25 minutes away and at the request of my sister, I created a copycat recipe for Chevy’s apple Chipotle Vinaigrette to satisfy any last-minute cravings.

    You can whip up this incredible, flavorful Chipotle Salad Dressing in just a couple minutes.

    As I’ve mentioned countless times, I much prefer making my own chipotle dressing to store bought bottles. Even bottled salad dressings from my favorite restaurant salads don’t compare. I assume it’s the preservatives. Making your own chipotle vinaigrette is quick and easy!

    I absolutely love these beautiful salad dressing bottles. These are a great option, too!

    How Long Does Chipotle Vinaigrette Last?

    It can be stored up to a week in an airtight container, making fresh lunches a breeze!

    Chipotle Vinaigrette with a twist

    Chipotle Vinaigrette is made with rosemary, apples, jalapeño, garlic, peppers, sugar, vinegar and oil with a few cracks of pepper.

    This salad dressing is so flavorful that you can use it on lettuce alone, but we love to toss it with grilled corn or my incredible Chipotle Corn Salsa Recipe, cheese, and grilled chicken. More great ideas to add to your salad are black beans, rice, tortilla strips, or avocado. If you try this chipotle salad dressing, I’d love to hear and see!

    1. Combine rosemary, sliced apples, jalapeño, garlic, peppers, sugar and a few cracks of pepper.
    2. Puree in a food processor.
    3. Add vinegar and olive oil. Blend until combined.
