  • Handful of soft herb leaves such as basil, chervil chives, cilantro, dill or parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider red or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Pinch of unrefined sugar if needed
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons mild olive or canola oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chive cilantro or mint leaves, optional
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • 2 tablespoons cider red or white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons honey to taste
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 small garlic clove crushed
  • 1 red or green chile deseeded if you like, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • To make any of the 4 options, shake the ingredients together in a lidded jar to emulsify, adding 1 tablespoon of water to each.
  • Alternatively, whisk everything together in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of water, adding the oil in a thin stream while whisking, and season to taste. The splash of water adds lightness.
  • In the case of the herb dressing, use a hand blender to blend the ingredients until smooth, if you like. You can then use this as a dip for crudités as well as a dressing.
