  • Made at home dressings

    I try to make my own dressings with no preservatives when I can. These are great and easy to make.

    Roasted Shallot-Sherry Vinaigrette
    Makes 1 cup

    8 small shallots, peeled and ends trimmed

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

    2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

    1 teaspoon lemon zest

    2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh parsley

    3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, toss the shallots with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place the shallots in a pie tin and roast them for 35 to 45 minutes, or until tender. Cool.

    Put the mustard, vinegar, zest and parsley into a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add four of the roasted shallots. Blend. Add the extra-virgin olive oil in a steady stream until the dressing emulsifies. Transfer to a medium bowl. Cut each of the remaining shallots in half (or in quarters, if they are large), and add to the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. The vinaigrette keeps refrigerated for five to seven days.

      These are wondeful MissKise! Thanks for sharing. Especially the Green Goddess one! It is an oldie but goodie that I grew up on and it's very hard to find and maybe they don't even make it any more. I know Penzey's Spices have a mix for it and I've always been tempted to get it, but was afraid if I didn't like there's I'd be stuck with an entire bag of mix.

                  Just made the most delicious huge easy peasy batch leek and cream cheese..I will just put ingredients as used but this did make a big panful so probably about 6 decent servings.

                  8-10 leeks need using up, having been in the garden in all that weather
                  1 bouillon stock cube
                  2 large onions
                  1 whole garlic bulb
                  sprinkle chives

                  cover with water to boil , then simmer till cooked....blend in pan so half smooth and textured

                  allow to cool slightly , then mix in 200g tub philadelphia light with garlic and herbs....de-lish??...ohhh yes
