Ann’s Crab-Apple Salad Dressing and Marinade (created by Elvy)

chicken kabobp>MY Neighbor made crab-apple jelly last fall and I made a terrific salad dressing that doubles as a great marinade on chicken and probably pork – although I haven’t tried pork yet. Don’t hesitate to put this dressing on a great summer salad with plenty of tomatoes which are so wonderful this time of year.
The recipe makes a little under two cups – plenty for cut up chicken thighs (best kind to grill) and lots of summer vegetables. You can put cut up thighs in a zip-lock bag overnight – or even a couple of days in the refrigerator, take them out when it’s time to grill.
Ann’s Crab-Apple Salad Dressing and Marinade
1/4 Cup apple jelly (without spices)
1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
3 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon Cavender’s Greek Seasoned Salt
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy and thick. Keeps for 2 weeks refrigerated.

  1. You had me until you wrote “apple jelly without spices.” Apply jelly with spices??? I wouldn’t know where to find apply jelly, with or without spices! 🙂 But you make me dream that some day I could actually cook/make these things!

  2. Leah – apple jelly is on the grocery shelf with the regular jelly isn’t it? Sometimes they put cinnamon in it, and I meant to avoid that kind. Sorry I didn’t see this earlier – been a busy week.
