Tips to give your salad dressing an interesting boost

Must Try

Good cooking doesn’t have to be difficult. Often it is just a matter of some clever tricks, hacks. And if you have mastered it, you can turn even seemingly boring things into something exciting. Just look at these ways to give your salad dressing an interesting pick-me-up.

Super easy and with a surprising result.

This is how you give your salad dressings a boost

Give it a smoke flavor

Many salad dressings are made with olive oil. Delicious of course, but did you know that there is also smoked olive oil ? With this you can easily give your salad dressing an interesting smoky taste. Super tasty in salads that also contain meat, or just as a boost for a vegetarian vegetable salad.

Salad dressings with drink

At Café Beurre in Amsterdam they know how to flavor dishes. For example, the dressing with their green salad contains Pastis, that aniseed-like liquor. Adding an alcoholic element to your salad dressing is something you can easily experiment with.

Consider, for example, a dash of whiskey with a mayonnaise-based dressing or rum. Do you want to achieve the same effect, but do you not drink alcohol? White or red wine vinegar in your salad dressing is also very tasty.

Go on the Asian tour

Does your salad contain ingredients that could use an Asian touch? Then make an Asian-inspired salad dressing. With sesame oil, soy sauce, a squeeze of lime and sriracha for example. Just stir a little by feel (taste is the key!) and you’ve created a stunner of a salad dressing in no time.

Life hack: leftover jam

Do you have a jar of jam that is almost empty? Do not rinse it out but use it as a container to make your salad dressing. What else should you put in your jar? Olive oil, salt, pepper and a dash of balsamic vinegar for example. A sweet element, such as jam, is often very tasty in salads with chicken or raw vegetables.

Replace salt with miso

In our opinion, a good dressing always contains a salt element. For that we quickly reach for the salt shaker, but you can just as well use a spoon of miso. Not only does that add salt, but it also adds that interesting, funky flavor from the fermented beans.

Didn’t we say it’s just a matter of simple hacks…?
