Simple Salad Dressing With Honey & Apple Cider Vinegar

Salad Dressing With Apple Cider Vinegar

This simple salad dressing with honey and apple cider vinegar is a classic recipe from Daylesford that can be used all year around:

This thick, moreish dressing is a staple with all manner of leafy salads throughout the year at Daylesford. In winter we glug it generously over kale with shredded apple and toasted nuts and when summer comes, it is wonderful with heritage tomatoes fresh from the vines of our Market Garden.

The addition of avocado or pumpkin seed oil adds a grassy and mineral- rich element, but should you not have any to hand, simply replace with a little more olive oil. We like to make a big bottleful so that it is always to hand in the cupboard.

You can also find this recipe in our latest e-Book titled ‘Bees In A Summer Kitchen’. This latest free, downloadable collection of 5 recipes is all about celebrating the work of our humble pollinators and that special connection between the vital work that they do, what we plant in our gardens and the food that they enable us to produce and enjoy in our kitchens.
