French dressing

There is nothing like a good dressing to bring out the flavour of salad. But the market is flooded with dressings containing artificial sweeteners, flavourings and other sickable ingredients. A simple French Dressing is a doddle to make and can be kept in the fridge for future use. I make no excuse for the dash of sugar in this, it really makes it – sweet, sour, salty – complementary flavours. I’d been making French Dressing for ages before discovering this, and it has REVOLUTIONISED my dressing! And did you know that oily dressings help the absorption of some of the salad’s nutrients? Tis true!

    Easy
Ingredients
  • 200ml extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • sea salt to taste (about a teaspoon)
  • grinding of black pepper
Instructions
Whisk it all up and store in a jar in the fridge!

You can make variations by adding other flavours; try adding a small amount of horseradish for a hotter dressing, or leave out the sugar and add a couple of squeezes of sweet chilli sauce.

If taking salad as a packed lunch transport your dressing separately and add at last minute. You can buy special small pots for this – worth the investment.
