Dark Sesame Seed Salad Dressing

I would eat salad everyday if I could have this dressing….GORGEOUS

*If you do not eat oily fish (Salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines, anchovy), please buy flax oil ffrom your health store and use it only in dressings. Do NOT cook with flax oil. Store it in a dark bottle away from sunlight and ensure the bottle is airtight.

In this dressing you get an omega 3 and 6 balance of fats. Omega 6 & 3 are termed ESSENTIAL. Your body cannot make them. You have to eat foods to get them.

Omega 3 plays a vital role in balancing immunity (inflammation).

Oyster and Hoisin,they hold well in the fridge and add  a depth to the dressing and are worth buying.

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

On a Low Fat diet, it is important to eat healthy fats. These are healthy fats.

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.
