Re: salad dressing

The simplest one I use is just Lemon juice, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper (sometimes I use line juice or freshly ground white pepper)

Re: salad dressing

A retro recipe:
1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon grated red onion
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt and pepper
Good over spinach leaves or any garden salad.

Fresh squeezed orange juice makes a very freshing dressing all by itself.

Flavored vinegars and balsamic vinegar are great, you need very little oil when using them.

A dressing made with raspberry vinegar goes well with smoked duck breast and arugula, or with gorgonzola and walnuts over lettuces, or tangerine vinegar over olives, onions, lettuces and goat cheese.  Add just a little oil and honey for balance.

Re: salad dressing

I did an onion and lettuce salad as a compliment to a Chicken Pasanda last weekend with a dressing of white wine vinegar, sesame oil, a pinch of turmeric and some coriander/cilantro leaf all whisked together like vinaigrette.  It worked well with a fragrant, creamy curry.

Re: salad dressing

Sorry, my short-term memory was sabotaged by cider; add toasted sesame seeds to the above dressing.
