Salad Dressings

Salad Dressings

A good basic vinaigrette is a great recipe to have in your repertoire especially when it’s made with delicious extra virgin olive oil. More flavoursome than bought dressings and no added preservatives!

The staple seasonings for vinaigrette are a sweetener, garlic, mustard, pepper, and salt. Vary the recipe to suit your taste, for example swap the honey for sugar or maple syrup, use a different vinegar, swap grainy mustard for Dijon.

The standard ratio of vinegar (or other acid) is 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil.

The method for all of these recipes is the same as the first.

HONEY VINAIGRETTE

INGREDIENTS

  • 50 ml white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp grainy mustard
  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 150 ml Great Southern Groves extra virgin olive oil

METHOD

    Place all the ingredients except for the GSG extra virgin olive oil into a medium-sized jar. With the lid firmly on shake well to combine, then add the olive oil and shake well again. Taste and adjust seasoning to suit – if it’s on the sharp side, a touch more salt and/or sugar will more often than not correct it rather than adding more oil.

NOTES:

Store in your refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks
