100ml light olive oil
200ml balsamic vinegar (these quantities can vary according to your particular taste)
1 x 15 ml spoon (1 tablespoon) of a selection of your favourite herbs from your garden (I used rosemary, thyme, curry plant and a little lemon sage)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
What to do:
- Wash and finely chop your herbs.
- Add balsamic vinegar to your jar then the olive oil along with the fresh herbs(dried herbs will do nicely if you prefer)and the salt and pepper.
- Give it a good stir or shake to combine well then leave to infuse in the refrigerator until needed.
- Serve over salads, fish dishes, new potatoes etc.
Top Tip: It is really simple to prepare and you can use fresh garlic, different mustards and even place whole chillies and sprigs of herbs like rosemary in the jar, as the oil will gradually infuse with all the flavours you dare to be creative with! Let me know how you get on!
