6 Simple Apple Cider Vinegar Dressings

6 Simple Apple Cider Vinegar Dressings

A lot of these dressing recipes can be made up in a flash with pantry staples. Apple Cider Vinegar is the perfect thing to have in your cupboard especially when you've got no fresh lemons on hand.

1. A Basic Vinaigrette

Simply whisk together 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil & 1 tsp of Dijon mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste and you have yourself a simple dressing.

Add a little minced garlic or shallot for another flavour.

2. Green Goddess Sauce

We're sure you've heard about this delicious dressing. The easiest way to make this one is to blend together 1 ripe avocado, a clove of garlic (or two), 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, 3 tbsp of natural yoghurt, 1/2 packed cup of fresh green herbs (any mix you like) and seasoning to taste. You might need to add up to 6 tbsp of water too, this will help you get the creamy consistency that makes this dressing so good.

Try stirring this sauce-like dressing through spaghetti instead of a salad for a light pasta dish.

3. Raspberry Dressing

Feeling like something a little sweeter? 1 cup of fresh raspberries (or frozen defrosted), 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar & 4 tbsp of honey, blended together makes a tangy, fruity dressing, perfect for a summer salad. Adding a pinch of salt can help to lift the flavours depending on your raspberries.

Try chilling this dressing before use and see which you prefer.

4. Sesame Ginger Sauce

The fresh ginger in this dressing gives a subtle warmth to every bite! Start by peeling and mincing 2 tbsp fresh ginger. Blend this together with 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp Healtheries Apple Cider vinegar with Turmeric & Ginger, 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil and once combined, stir through 1 tsp sesame seeds.

Add some orange or lime juice & zest for a fresher taste.

5. Tahini Miso Dressing

On a more hearty salad, like roasted vegetables, this earthy, flavour-packed dressing is perfect! Whisk together a 1/4 cup of tahini with 1 tbsp of white miso paste, 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. At this stage the dressing will be thick so add water, a tsp at a time, continuing until the dressing is the consistency you like.

6. Honey Lemon Vinaigrette

The final dressing on our list is this yummy vinaigrette, a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy, great on any salad. Simply combine 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp Healtheries Apple Cider vinegar with Turmeric & Ginger, zest and juice of one lemon and 2 tbsp honey. Finally, season to taste.
