We eat lots of salads, we always have mayo or salad cream but sometimes we have a little dressing for a change.

I forgot to get some the other day and it is so easy just to pop back up to the supermarket to get one thing and end up with a basket full. So I decided I would make some. My cupboards are always well stocked up I can rustle up most things.
Dear Hubby & Dear Son like Honey & Mustard, I tend to like an oil based or balsamic one. 

So I made two lots.

Balsamic Vinegar & Olive Oil Dressing.

1 sprig of fresh Thyme
1 spring of fresh Oregano
225 ml Olive Oil
5 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar 
Salt & Pepper to Season.

Just put the herbs right in the bottle or jar, then mix the rest of the ingredients and pour in.

The Balsamic will settle to the bottom, just needs a good shake before use.

Honey & Mustard Dressing

3 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
5 Tbsp Runny Honey
4 Tsp Dijon Mustard
1 Garlic Clove (Crushed) 
100ml Sunflower Oil
Salt and Pepper to season.

Again mix well and pour into bottle or jar.

Best kept a few days before use.

I always keep good jars and bottles, these maple syrup bottles were ideal.

Does any one else make there own dressings ?
