Advantages: Tasty to give some oomph to salad
Disadvantages: Very garlicky - be warned!
As I am sat here, munching my tasty lunch, with the sun streaming through the windows I thought I would share with you the vinaigrette that my mum taught me to make when I went off to Uni (10 years ago!!)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp rock salt
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 7 tbsp olive oil
- Pepper for seasoning
1. Crush the garlic
2. Pound the garlic with the salt until you get a smooth paste - at my mums I use a pestel and mortar to do this. At home I don't have one, so I tend to chop the garlic up and crush on the chopping board with the back of a teaspoon!
3. Put the paste, mustard powder and balsamic vinegar into a screw top jar. Season with pepper and give it a stir to make sure all the powder is dissolved
4. Add the olive oil. screw on the lid and shake away!
5. Unscrew the lid and taste; add more oil/vinegar depending on your taste buds if required
et volia - zingy, garlicky salad dressing.
Oh - if you are feeling lazy then use the pre-minced garlic from a jar -I don't bother to crush this with salt I just chuck it all in the screwtop jar and give it a quick shake!
This will keep in the fridge for about 5 days - great for the working week to take to work, I tend to find its even better on the second day as the garlic really infuses into the dressing! Always give it a good shake before serving!
Summary: A treat for my otherwise boring salads!
