Why Not Brighten Up Spring With A Manuka Honey Salad Dressing Recipe?
With spring finally arrived, many people are using it as an opportunity to try new and interesting recipes – with salads being a fixture of the warmer seasons, why not try one with Manuka honey?
Why Should I Try Manuka Honey In Salads?
We’ve often talked about the potential benefits that Manuka may have on our general wellbeing, but another factor in the reputation and popularity of Manuka is its unique aroma and taste. The Manuka flower is only cultivated naturally in a specific region of the world; predominantly on the North Island of New Zealand. Whilst the conditions aid its growth, the flower’s genetic properties make it stand out other most other types of honey. The rich, intense, unique sweet flavour can place another dimension on even seemingly age-old recipes – and it’s for this relative-rarity (aside from its potential genetic benefits) that Manuka would make a great addition to any summer salad.
Create Your Own Manuka Honey Salad Dressing
Salad dressing is easy to make and you know exactly what goes into it! Use this recipe as a base of any salad dressing: simply mix 1 part of balsamic vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar to 3 parts of extra virgin olive oil, half a teaspoon of Manuka honey, add salt and pepper to taste. You can create variations by adding in herbs like fresh chopped herbs such as dill, basil, parsley, mint, finely minced garlic or dijon mustard etc.
