Summer is for salads

All of my favourite salad dressings, fit for greens and grains…
Bridget’s House dressing 1

2/3 cups of olive oil or grape seed oil
4 T vinegar (cider, sherry, white or red wine vinegar)
3 T honey or maple syrup
1 t sea salt
Freshly ground pepper.

I put everything into a mason jar, put the lid on and give it a good shake.

Tip: Try making this with ½ walnut oil or hazelnut oil
