Salad Dressings

Dish: Salad

Cuisine: Summer Salad


1/3 acid and 2/3 oil
  • Add oil and acid together and whisk vigourously with a fork until it turns thick and creamy (forms an emulsion). Dressing shakers can be used. Scan for a salad video recipe, demonstrating my dressing technique:
Now… adding your touch. Basic balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1/3 balsamic vinegar
  • 2/3 olive oil
Basic Greek Salad dressing
  • 1/3 lemon juice
  • 2/3 olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp of oregano
Asian inspired dressing (salads or coleslaws)
  • 1/3 lemon or lime
  • 2/3 sesame oil
  • Sweet chilli sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, honey, chilli flakes can all be used


Have fun… Think of the vegetables you have mixed together and what inspired you e.g. style of cuisine, and match a set of ingredients (sauces and spices) in the dressing with an appropriate oil and acid. Taste as you go and end up with your own magic!
