SPICY SALAD DRESSING
Well it is… spicy to me. I was making a spicy Asian slaw and then I saw the peanut butter dressing. As much as the slaw appealed to me, the dressing, which basically drives the flavours home, did not. So I took a bowl and began to concoct my version of hot [actually it is pretty mild] salad dressing for the slaw. It really surprised me what I put into the bowl, it is clear now that I have a predominantly European palate, certainly not an Asian one. I am interested to see how the two will come together. This recipe makes a pretty small amount of dressing, but I found it was just the right amount to flavour the large bowl of slaw I was making.
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp white vine vinegar
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 pinch Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp water
1 pinch onion salt
1 tsp Herbs de Provencale [Epicure]
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp marjoram
1 pinch of red pepper flakes
• Measure the ingredients into a small bowl.
• Whisk to combine and set aside for a couple hours so the flavours can mingle.
• Whisk together just before pouring over the salad and serve promptly.
