yummy things

I made the yummiest salad dressing tonight, and want to share the recipe before I forget how I made it. You could use this on any green salad, especially spinach.

Buckwheat honey and mustard dressing

2 tbsp buckwheat honey
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp whole-grain mustard
1 tsp Dijon mustard
6 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Whisk together well, or put lid on jar and shake well. Make sure honey is dissolved. This should be enough for 4 servings of salad.

I used the buckwheat honey because that's all we had, but it was so much tastier than just regular honey-mustard dressing! These are all ingredients I usually have around the house, and I'm not sure how substitutions would taste, but I hope you try this.

We also tried some jerusalem artichokes we picked up from the organic farm booth at the farmer's market. I peeled and boiled them, then after draining, mixed in some butter, tarragon, salt and pepper. They have a very unique but nice flavour. We'll have to get some again.

I thought the artichokes were a bit too hasidic. ;)

I'm sorry to hear you missed out on the craft fair. They don't realise what they missed. All the more for those that want! I don't think I've seen buckwheat honey in Somerset. Sounds good. Looking forward to seeing the new patterns. I'm into teapot cosies for a while after being given a very old knitting pattern from an elderly neighbour. Quite quaint!
