Best of three: Salad dressings

Briannas Blue Cheese Dressing

dressingLess of a dressing and more of a decadent rich sauce, this offering from Briannas is so good it shouldn’t be reserved for salads alone. Made in Texas, it’s thick and creamy and even has real bits of blue cheese in it.

Best for? Not the faint-hearted: it’s pungent (in a good way) and piquant. tip: Arguably a little too thick for the delicate new season salad leaves, try it with baby spinach and a well-seasoned steak. Or, drizzle over roasted butternut squash and red onions, with toasted walnuts.

How much? Briannas Blue Cheese Dressing (355ml) is available from Waitrose, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, ASDA and independents across the UK for £2.99. For full stockist details look online.

French’s Caesar Dressing

dressingWhat is Romaine lettuce without a Caesar dressing? One of the most famous salad dressings of the last century, a classic Caesar includes garlic, egg yolk, anchovies and cheese. This speedy alternative is creamy, packs a strong garlicky punch, but is rounded off with plenty of strong Parmesan. It’s smooth in consistency and has the thickness of homemade mayonnaise.

Best for? Those who like a polite nod to healthy eating, but can’t give up the truly good things in life, like Caesar dressing. tip: Keep it classic with crunchy, fresh lettuce, golden croutons, shavings of fresh Parmesan and fresh anchovies. Oh, and the dressing, of course.

How much? French’s Caesar Dressing (270g) is £2.49 and is available from Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Whole Foods from mid May.

All Natural Righteous Lemon & Mustard Dressing

dressingThere is a reason you see lemon and mustard in classic vinaigrette recipes time and time again: the combination works. Made with rapeseed oil, lemon juice, white wine vinegar and wholegrain mustard, this dressing is light, refreshing, tangy and perfect to complement a range of different salad leaves. Whole mustard seeds add a lovely pop in the mouth.

Best for? Vegans and those who like it natural. This dressing has no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, is gluten-free and vegan friendly. tip: Try in a classic green salad to bring out the natural flavours of the leaves, or use to lightly coat grated root veggies.

How much? All Natural Righteous Lemon & Mustard Dressing (225ml) is £2.99 and available from Tesco, Waitrose, Harvey Nichols, Whole Foods, Cotswold Fayre and Marigold Health Foods.
