Salad dressings

I love vegetables. Salads or cooked, it doesn’t matter. The thing that makes a great vegetable dish is a complementary dressing. Here are some of my favourites.

Basic vinaigrette

1 part balsamic, apple cider or malt vinegar or lemon juice

2 parts extra virgin olive oil

OPTIONAL: herbs, salt and pepper, wholeseed mustard

Add vinegar or lemon juice and EVOO to a clean jar. If using, add optional herbs and spices. Screw on the lid and shake until emulsified. Pour over salad and/or vegetable dish and toss to cover.

Salsa Verde

1 bunch of parsley (Continental or curly is fine)

2 anchovy fillets

juice of half a lemon

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

OPTIONAL: Tabasco sauce

Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Great with fish.


I’ll add more as they come to mind.
