If you're like me and you find plain raw salad a little sad and boring, this recipe is for you.
Here's my go to salad dressing to bring my salad to the next level :) Make it at home because it's cheaper and you know exactly what it's in it (no nasties!).
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 tb of vinegar: White, Apple Cider or Balsamic - or replace vinegar with the juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp of mustard seeds
1 tbsp of honey or maple syrup
1/4 tsp of sea salt
4 tsp of pepper
2 garlic cloves minced, or thinly sliced
1 tb of sesame oil for a nutty taste
Herbs of your choice: thyme or shallots
Combine all ingredients into a jar and mix it well.
Store in the fridge. I usually keep it for up to 2-3 weeks.
At meal time, shake the jar to mix the ingredients then add a few tablespoons of your dressing on top of your salad.
The optional ingredients above can help you make some slightvariations to the basic dressing.
As always I hope that your enjoy these little recipes. Leave me a comment to let me know if you'd like more ;)
Bon Appétit to you!
