A good but simple dressing will make your salad more interesting and compliment the ingredients nicely. Consisting of mainly olive oil, sweet vinegar and seasoning, a basic salad dressing is easy to put together at the very last minute – especially handy when you are expecting guests and have forgotten to buy fancy dressings.
- Pour two parts olive oil to one part balsamic vinegar into a jar.
- Add some honey, salt and pepper to taste.
- Put the lid on the jar and shake it really hard. Then have a little taste.
- It might need something extra to make it perfect – perhaps some wholegrain mustard, some herbs or whatever you feel like. Be creative!
