Salads Sauces

Salad dressings

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. 

Salad dressings


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.


These dressings keep for a couple of days in the fridge and are particularly tasty with a cheese salad.
