This is the most versatile salad dressing ever and it's so good for helping your digestion.
Bitter leaves are seriously super at stimulating your digestive juices, especially by supporting your liver and your gall bladder.
This dressing contains some of these leaves (dandelion, mint, cress, rocket, spinach) and can be used over others in a salad, like radicchio, beet greens, spinach, chicory, endive......a supertastic double whammy.
The dressing is also gorgeous over hot boiled baby potatoes...an alternative 'potato salad' to the mayonnaise variety.
It's based on the Ballymaloe French Dressing, but has alot more 'green' in it.
175ml (6 fl oz) good extra virgin olive oil
50ml (2 fl oz) white wine vinegar (or even better a nice cloudy apple cider vinegar)
1/2 to 1 level tsp sea salt or herbamare
few grinds of black pepper
1 large garlic clove, peeled and roughly chopped
Handful of mixed leaves - washed dandelion from the garden, mixed organic rocket, watercress and spinach from tesco, oregano & mint leaves from the garden (use whatever you like, though I recommend a mix - oregano, mint or dandelion would be too strong on their own)
Throw all of the ingredients in a blender and whizz for about a minute - glorious!
