Weekend Herb Blogging #286

This round we are hosting Weekend Herb Blogging! Let's get the ball rolling with our very own entry. A simple salad dressing which you can tweak to your own liking.

Here are the items needed.

Juice of one lemon or calamansi.
Apple cider vinegar
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
and a glass bottle to shake things up.

Add equal parts of juice and olive oil into the glass bottle. And half portion of apple cider vinegar.
Add in salt and pepper to taste.

It will look something like this. Options for you to add different juices or even fruits or herbs to it. I especially like it with different fresh herbs, depends on what is the main course that is served alongside.

Shake it up and the dressing is ready to use! (or tweak)

It will look milky like this! I prefer the calamansi version. Add in some zest to spike things up a little. Goes especially well with butterhead and tomatoes.

And now for the rest of the entries.

Beetroot Chutney

Rinku from Cooking in Westchester serves us this delightful beetroot chutney. An explosive mix of flavours is sure to get the appetite going. And a tip on how to get your roasted beetroot sweet and buttery.

Sparkling Rose Cocktail

Cindy from Cinzia shares with us this magical drink which is perfect for the summer. Elder syrup, soda water and mint is my favourite mixture. It is so versatile. I love it with chandonnay and now, with this sharing from Cindy, I have yet added another wonderful cocktail to my list! Thank you Cindy!

Leek and Oyster Mushroom Tart

Our very own Haalo from cookalmostanything shares with us the use of leek and oyster mushroom to create this wonderful tart. This rich and flavourful tart is sure to make any weekend afternoon gathering a buzz!

Lemon Cheesecake Macaroons

 Sue from You can do it at home shows us the secret of making these delicious macaroons and combining it with a ultimate tasting filling... Lemon cheesecake! What a delight to have with the uplifting spirits of the citrus and creamy, buttery taste of the cream cheese. So tempting!

Crostini with oven roasted cherry tomatoes

Simona from Briciole pairs the wonderful sweetness of the roasted cherry tomatoes with a freshly baked crostini. A simple quick serving recipe that packs a delicious punch.

Forty Clove ChickPeas and Brocolli

 Janet from My Taste Space presents to us a highly nutritious and easy to make recipe in chickpeas and brocolli. The flavours brought together by the garlic and lemon-y sauce will certainly appeal to the palate of all ages. A great way to get your kids to take their greens perhaps? :)

And that's a wrap!
