I bought a bottle of Walnut Oil to use as a food safe wood finish. The wonderful smell got to me, and I had to splurge and make some salad dressing with it. It will be difficult to use any other dressing, after tasting this.
3 tablespoons Walnut Oil
1 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
Honey to taste
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Herbs–Basil, Parsley, and/or Oregano
Simply whisk all of these together, taste it, try not to salivate, and you’re done. This is plenty for two salads.
If you spill some Walnut oil on your cutting board, no worries–it’s the finest food safe finish around, and it will just make your kitchen small better. It is a bit pricey, and imagine this moocher’s reaction when he found the same amount of oil for $1 cheaper at–audible gasp–Whole Foods.
