This is almost too simple to be a recipe. Be adventurous when making vinaigrettes and salad dressings.
- 100 ml olive oil
- 2.5 tablespoons vinegar of choice
- 5g caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard (optional)
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Add the ingredients to a screw-top jar, shake well and store in the fridge for up to a week or so.
Drizzle over salads.
- Sherry vinegar (one of my favourites)
- Chinese black vinegar (another favourite - sort of funky balsamic vinegar)
- Balsamic vinegar
- Cider vinegar
- White / Red wine vinegar
- Red / white wine
- Chopped chives (and flowers)
