Use home made vinaigrette to dress summer salads

A tasty dressing can spruce up an otherwise dull salad

Salads can seem pretty dull if the same ingredients are used each time, but you just need a little inspiration and some new flavour ideas to produce a different leaf-based meal for every day of the week.

One way to spruce up a salad could be to try making some homemade salad dressings, such as a vinaigrette or balsamic dressing.

Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens has provided recipes for both in the July 23rd issue of the Times Magazine.

His grain mustard vinaigrette combines whole grain mustard, caster sugar, honey and white wine vinegar, along with a pinch of salt, some black pepper, and vegetable and olive oil.

Meanwhile, a delicious balsamic dressing can be rustled up in no time at all using chopped shallots, garlic cloves and thyme, oil and balsamic vinegar.

Consumers might also like to try using their own produce, with recent research by HSBC suggesting that 27 per cent of Britons now have their own vegetable patch, while 41 per cent would include space to grow vegetables in their ideal garden.
