    Ok, more researching... here are some recipes you can experiment with.

    Balsamic-Apple Vinaigrette

    2 cups balsamic vinegar
    1⁄2 tablespoon apple juice concentrate (available in frozen foods section)

    In a nonreactive saucepan over high heat, reduce vinegar to a syruplike consistency (about 3⁄4 cup), lowering heat to a simmer when volume is around 1 cup; test consistency by removing a spoonful and letting it cool (process takes about 35 minutes). Cool to room temperature and stir in concentrate. Transfer to a squirt bottle.



    Balsamic Apple Vinaigrette

    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup cider vinegar
    1/4 cup apple juice
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
    1 small shallot, minced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    Small pinch red pepper flakes


    In skillet over medium-high heat, melt the brown sugar, stirring constantly. Carefully pour in cider vinegar (it will steam and bubble up) and continue to cook and until sugar dissolves. (Sugar will clump at first but then dissolve.) Add apple juice and balsamic vinegar. Turn into a bowl and set aside. Rinse skillet, then add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add shallot, garlic, basil and pepper and cook until shallots are tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in sugar-vinegar mixture and season to taste with salt.
    Can be made ahead and stored in covered container in refrigerator.

    I tried the recipe listed for the fuji apple salad dressing. Then I realized that the dressing does not taste like a vinaigrette. It's actually not like any other salad dressing recipe I could find. It's more like a dressing for a fruit salad, which is why it's so good!

    But I did find a way to recreate it quite accurately. If you don't believe me, just try it: compare the dressing from Panera (which has no vinegar taste and no garlic taste) to this recipe:

    1/2 cup apple juice concentrate
    1/2 cup creme fraiche (or sour cream if you can't find it)
    2 T. honey

    You can change around the proportions to your taste, but I believe those are the only ingredients you will need.
