Hope you’re all doing well
I’ve had a lot of people request that I do a recipe video for a savory salad dressing, so I thought I’d share one of my favorite summer salad recipes with you. This dredsing is really easy to make, nightshade and overt free, and super versatile as it works well with a large variety of greens, like pak choi, baby spinach, romaine etc., and also with chopped celery or cucumbers. It also makes a great sauce for zucchini or cucumber noodles. I hope you like it!
Another reason this dressing has such a lovely flavor is because, like traditional dressings, it is made from a combination of ’oily’ and ‘vinegary’ ingredients. The herbs contain essential oils which add a richness to the sauce and the oranges cut through this, as vinegar would do in traditional dressings, and so create a really well-balanced taste. I absolutely love this savory dressing and hope you do to
If you have a particular request for a type of recipe you’d like to see then just send me a message and I’ll try to cover them all in the next couple of weeks.
Have a wonderful day,

The name for Dill comes from the Norse word ‘Dilla’, meaning ‘to lull’. This is because the herb was traditionally used to sooth the stomach, and to help prevent insomnia.
The name for Basil comes from the old Greek word ‘basilikohn’, meaning ‘royal’. This is because in old Greek culture the herb was seen to be sacred. The importance of Basil is seen in other cultures too – in India Basil is associated with hospitality, while in Italy the herb is a symbol of love.
