· 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

· 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

· 1 tsp Dijon mustard

· 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup

· ¼ tsp smoked paprika

· ½ tsp kosher salt

· 1 honey crisp apple thinly sliced and halved

· ½ cup dry roasted and salted almonds, roughly chopped

· 1 grapefruit cut into slices

1. Add all of the vinaigrette ingredients in a mason jar and shake well, or in a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey or maple syrup, smoked paprika, salt and pepper until well combined. Set aside.
