Speedy Salad Dressing

As you may know, I’m pretty much a slave to Pizza Express House Dressing, but my dear fiancé has recently convinced me that homemade vinaigrette can be every bit as good. I’d never had a vinaigrette I really liked until he presented me with his delicious lemon and garlic chicken salad with mustard and white balsamic dressing. So, I asked him for the recipe and attempted my own, albeit I only had regular balsamic in my cupboard.


For this, you will need:

4 tablespoons oil of your preference, he swears by sunflower

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Salt and sugar to taste 

I also added some oregano and parsley, which are completely optional 

1 clean, sterilised jar or dressing bottle with a well-fitting lid

Add all the ingredients to the jar or bottle, screw the lid on and shake hard until well mixed. Taste, alter the balance of salt, sugar, mustard or oil and shake again. Repeat until you are happy with it. I’ve been keeping this in the fridge but be warned that the cold may seize up the oil (I used a little olive oil in mine)
