I love my salads but find bought dressings are very cloying and have an artificial flavour which detracts from the other ingredients. These dressings compliment a simple salad as they have sweet and slightly sharp flavours. I like to use them with a plate of rocket with some sliced smoked duck and some crispy croutons, or a strawberry and Somerset Brie salad.
Honey and strawberry vinegar dressing
- 1 tbsp strawberry vinegar
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- a pinch of coarse ground black pepper
- 1 tsp honey
Creamy honeyed salad dressing
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp crème fraiche
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp chopped sage
- Using your choice of ingredients, mix them well all together or put into a jar and shake well.
