  • Serve with rice or noodles. Enjoy!

 

French dressing with an Australian & Asian vibe

In France, there's (nearly) no salad without a "vinaigrette", a French dressing. That of my grandma was particularly tasty, she used to add a bit of sugar.
Inspired by my family recipe is this French dressing with an Australian and Asian vibe, thanks to the ginger kick. 

Ingredients 

1/2 teaspoon V&G's Lemon Myrtle & Ginger syrup
1/2 teaspoon V&G's Tasmanian pepper syrup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoon olive, macadamia or avocado oil
Salt to taste

METHOD

  • Mix all ingredients in a jar. 
  • Taste and add salt to your taste.
  • Use over Asian-style salads.
