Delicious salad dressing best used on rocket and cheese salads! It was a recipe that was invented on a cold winter night that I never fail to use on rocket now. If you don't have enough time, only crush one clove of garlic and instead add a tablespoon of oil. This recipe has been tried and tested on friends and family and has had the same reaction...."delicious!"
Ah, honey and balsamic vinegar are two of my favourite ingredients! I'm like Winnie the Pooh, I pretty much eat honey out the jar... so I love making my own salad dressings with honey. You can just put as much of each salad ingredient in as you like - the same goes with the dressing. The best way to get it right is to keep testing it and to add more of what you think it needs for the flavour and consistency that you want.
