OLIVE OIL AND RED WINE VIN DRESSING

EVK’s versatile classic Olive Oil and Red Wine Vinegar Dressing! Checkout our post on Making Salad Dressings!

  • Author:

Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • Bragg’s (or soy sauce)
  • maple syrup (or honey)

Instructions

  1. Pour a few good splashes of olive oil into a jar, blender or mini food processor.
  2. Add a good splash of red wine vinegar- you want to have a ratio of about 3 parts oil to 1 part acid.
  3. Add a clove of garlic + small piece of ginger, both finely diced.
  4. Add a splash of Bragg’s and a little splash of maple syrup to take the acid edge off.
  5. Seal your jar and shake, or whiz with a blender, submersion blender or mini food processor.
  6. Taste your dressing and balance it by adding more of whatever you think it needs.
  7. At the very last minute before serving your salad add the dressing a little at a time, tossing as you go. You don’t need to use everything you’ve prepared, it’ll keep for a bit in a sealed jar in the fridge. ‘Less dressing, more tossing’ is the mantra for salad success!
