Recipe: Four delicious salad dressings to try

WITH our weather warming up, I am always asked how I make really tasty salads. Well the answer is in the dressing. A salad dressing can take a few leaves and turn them into something extraordinary.

Here are a few of my favourite dressings that I keep in my fridge to flavour up anything from my wild garden leaves to steamed vegetables and stir-frys. They even double as marinades.

 

Moroccan spiced yogurt dressing:

Makes 1 cup, prep time five minutes

INGREDIENTS:

250g natural Greek yogurt, 2 tbs lemon juice, 1 tsp minced garlic, 2 tbs Moroccan seasoning, ¼ cup chopped mint, salt and pepper

Sweet chili and lime dressing:

Italian dressing:
