This French dressing recipe is delicious. It’s easy to make and tastes so much nicer than shop bought dressings.
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 (I always use white wine vinegar) and 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a jar with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • Put the lid on the jar and shake well.
It’s that easy 🙂
A great summer recipe, and the perfect accompaniment for bbq food.
Steam brown rice and over/above the rice steam some mixed vegetables – frozen can be used or fresh if you have them. I used a fixture of carrots, peas and sweetcorn but you can use whatever takes your fancy. Add drained beans – any kind will do and sliced celery for a bit of crunch.
If you want to make a dressing, mix olive oil, balsamic, salt, pepper, whole grain mustard, garlic, parsley and lemon juice – taste to make sure this suits your preference and then drizzle over when ready to serve.
