Dress it up!

Today I am inspired by Jamie Oliver, so I cracked out my copy of his Food Revolution book and remembered his great ‘Jam Jar Dressings’.

Summer season means salads in my kitchen, but none of those plain oil and vinegar dressings will do for me. So check out below four of his delicious recipes via jamieoliver.com. I just love knowing exactly what ingredients are going into my dressings. My favourite is the yoghurt dressing, as it tastes creamy but light, perfect for crisp romaine lettuce and crunchy cucumbers with chopped herbs.

French dressing:
Peel and finely chop ¼ of a clove of garlic • Put the garlic, 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons of white or red wine vinegar and 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a jam jar with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • Put the lid on the jar and shake well

Yoghurt dressing: 
Put 1/3 cup of natural yoghurt, 2 tablespoons of white or red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil into a jam jar with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • Put the lid on the jar and shake well

Lemon dressing: 
Put 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a jam jar with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • Squeeze in the juice of 1 lemon • Put the lid on the jar and shake well

Balsamic dressing: 
Put 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar into a jam jar with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • Put the lid on the jar and shake well

To make your own dressing at home all you need a simple jam jar. But if you want to make it even easier why not check out these shakers complete with recipes right on the side!
