Sunflower Vinaigrette

Recipe Level: Basic | Recipe Speed: Quick | Season: All | Type: Condiment | Diet: Vegan/Vegetarian/GF/DF

This salad dressing is nutty, with a hint of garlic. It's a great match for baby lettuce, cheddar cheese, cucumbers, and apples. 

  • 1 cup oil (I like to use 2/3 cup sunflower oil and 1 cup olive oil)
  • 1/3 cup of cider or white wine vinegar, or lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • a few grinds of fresh pepper
  1. This recipe is best made in a food processor or blender, because you're mixing in toasted sunflower seeds. All you need to do is combine the ingredients and blend until uniform. 
  2. Taste the dressing, and see if you like the level of seasoning. Add more salt, or pepper, or mustard, or garlic, as desired.
