Tomato, apple cider vinegar and linseed oil vinaigrette

Don’t measure; just pour

This is my go to salad dressing.  I never measure other than by eye and use a standard 1lb honey jar with screw lid but any container which you can shake will work fine or you can just mix it.   It is so little effort and everyone loves it.

Optional extras

I always put in lots of garlic but that can be left out if you prefer. Feel free to use chopped fresh or tinned tomato and add little extras like capers, chopped cornichon, roasted red peppers etc.


I like to use tinned plum tomatoes because they have a better flavour and chop  them myself.  The tomato makes it a lighter salad dressing, a little sweeter and more flavoursome. It is also a useful way to way to get tomatoes into a salad if you don’t have any fresh ones.
