Food Hack #98: Get that Salad Dressed!
Cheat's salad dressing
Do you ever have an urge to eat salad when you get in from work? You do? Crazy child. But who am I to judge? In fact I am here to help. If you have any leftover honey or Dijon mustard in a jar, here is how to create your own vinaigrette dressing cheaply and quickly.
Let's face it, paying £3 for an upmarket, home-style dressing is just nonsense when you can do it yourself for free!
Dijon or other grainy mustard
If you have a smattering of runny honey left in a jar, add a few teaspoonfuls of Dijon mustard. Likewise if you have some Dijon mustard left in a jar, add a few teaspoonfuls of clear runny honey.
Then add a few ml of olive oil - about two teaspoonfuls, and a few dashes of red wine or white wine vinegar, replace the lid and shake what your mother gave you, and well.
Once it has all mixed together, et voila! You have a delicious salad dressing made up of leftovers.
