Either one is fine, depends on your taste!

By the way it keeps fine in the fridge for weeks (I make it in a jar). It can go solid in the fridge, but it's fine if you take it out 10 mins before needed.

You can make loads of different types of dressing if you follow the 2:1 ration of oil to acid (vinegar or lemon juice). Works with most oils and vinegars.

2:1...

That's useful to know thanks. I do like balsamic dressings they just don't seem to taste that great in the shops any more. I'll look forward to trying my own

One last thing, if you're going to use a strong flavoured oil (walnut, sesame or even olive for example) you can go halves with something more neutral such as sunflower or rapeseed.

This past month I discovered apple cider vinegar. Nice and tangy. I made a Greek salad dressing today using it instead of balsamic or red wine vinegar. I tastes quite nice.

I quite often add a bit of maple syrup or honey to oil vinegar mustard salt and pepper. It lovely if you are doing a coleslaw as alternative to a mayonnaise dressing.

Look up Asian style dressings too, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce chilli, fresh coriander, lime p, fresh mint, pinch of sugar.

Sumac is dried berries usually from Iran. It has a lime/sharp taste and is great used in a fattoush salad with dried mint, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic.

Sumac is the bomb! It’s great with lamb or chicken or fish dishes too. Adds a zesty, sharp freshness. Lovely in salads, sprinkled on top of shakshuka (another healthy, super-easy recipe that is to die for!)

Hi can I ask what you are using the tahini for? I have a whole jar minus 3 tablespoons which I used to make hummus?
