Flax Farm Simple (Omega-3) Linseed Vinaigrette

cold-pressed linseed (flaxseed) oil

 Flax Farm Cold-Pressed Linseed (Flaxseed) Oil makes Delicious Salad Dressing

Our cold-pressed linseed oil has a lovely mild nutty flavour that is great on its own and goes well with other ingredients.  It makes a  lovely dressing with balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. I love using apple cider vinegar and really believe in its health properties; I find olive oil has too strong a flavour for ACV but our linseed oil and ACV work beautifully together.

Keep It Simple

Just Flax Farm cold-pressed linseed (flaxseed) oil and lemon juice or vinegar of your choice drizzled over salad leaves is salad dressing. You don’t even have to mix them first! I usually don’t even add salt. Traditionally vinaigrette  is about three parts oil to one part vinegar or lemon juice but with the linseed oil I often use them fifty-fifty especially when there are lots of other ingredients.

Dress it Up

Add in other seasoning and ingredients you fancy.  Start with a pinch of salt and pepper, then a pinch of dried herbs or handful of chopped fresh herbs. Try some sunflower seeds or chopped nuts.  Chopped tomatoes or red peppers and/or chillies adds colour and flavour.  Special spices such as turmeric can be anti-inflammatory and herbs like dandelion or nettle  are alkalising but don’t overdo them as their flavour can be too powerful.  A clove of crushed garlic is great if you like it – don’t forget to let it rest for five minutes before adding to let the full health benefits develop. Then try anchovies, chopped gherkins (cornichons) and/or capers.

Blend with Other Oils

Our Linseed oil is great on its own but for a salad dressing with extra flavour try using it 50/50 with a really robust olive oil or try a few drops of walnut, hazelnut or toasted sesame seed oil to add a whole new dimension to your salad dressing.

Getting Enough Omega-3

When you use Flax Farm cold-pressed linseed (flaxseed) oil in salad dressing it’s easy; you know you are getting approximately 6 ml of omega-3 in every dessertspoon of oil you use.
