Chilli Herb & Creamy Salad Dressing

You can make this up in a glass jar and store it airtight in a dark cupboard.

Omega 3 is termed ESSENTIAL. Your body cannot make it. You have to eat foods to get it. You can supplement it by using Flax oil in dressings.

When making a dressing, season it and taste as you go. It needs to be a powerful hit on your tastebuds because once it is on food, the ‘hit’ will lessen

Note: Any products that you buy in glass jars such as yogurt, gherkins, sauerkraut – wash the jars and keep them for salad dressings. Glass is the most stable compound to keep oils in.

Store all oils in dark places (fridges and cupboards) in cool temperatures, out of direct sunlight.
