planning a "megga buffet".... with lots of side/salad dishes... but am a bit concerned that there will be too many similar dressings.
Coronation chicken and coleslaw both use mayonnaise; lots of other salads use vinaigrette. Will leave dressings off completely where I can but am interested in alternative dressing ideas (or variations, where it won't seem so "samey" ) Thanks
Not sure if this will go as it depends on the types of food in your buffet but you can do coleslaw with asian-style dressing (sorry, American recipe so in cups):
1/4 c sugar 1/2 c warm water 1/4 fish sauce 1/4 c white vinegar 1/2 a lime, juiced 3-4 clove garlic, minced 1 tsp hot sauce (optional) Mix up water and sugar, stir till disolved. Add fish sauce, vinegar, lime juice and mix. Adjust flavours to taste, then add garlic and hot sauce (if using).
Or make the coleslaw dressing with more yoghurt rather than mayo to make it a bit lighter.
Jamie's happy days has some nice dressings (both on line if you google): Creme Fraiche and Grilled Lemon honey and lemon juice
A lot of salads I think are just nice with a good olive oil, salt and pepper.
