My Favourite Salad Dressing!

MY FAVOURITE SALAD DRESSING (From the 'My Way of Cooking' Cookbook)

I have tried a few salad dressings in the Thermomix. This one is my favourite. Tastes delicious!! It is 0 WeightWatchers ProPoints for the drizzle you would put on your salad. It is also Paleo (if you leave the sugar out and buy a sugarfree organic mustard from your nearest health food shop).

240g Extra Virgin Olive Oil
50g Wholegrain Mustard
50g Balsamic Vinegar
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp mixed dried herbs (eg. Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp (pinch) of cracked pepper

1) Place a jar or container onto the TMX mixing bowl lid. Weigh oil into it and set aside.

2) Place all remaining ingredients into the TMX bowl and mix for 30 seconds on Speed 4.

3) Hold measuring cup with your hand to prevent it from vibrating, beat for 3 minutes on Speed 4. Meanwhile pour the oil onto the mixing bowl lid. Once time is up, pour into a jar or dressing jars and refrigerate.

It's that easy!!!!! Enjoy!


  1. My salad dressing is actually just my home-made mayo.. definately paleo! It's based on the mayo recipe in the Everyday Cookbook:

    grind 1tbsp mustard seeds in pestle & mortar (you could try the TM but I don't think it's up to the task)
    chop 3 garlic cloves in TM
    Insert butterfly
    add mustard, 1 egg yolk, juice of 1 lemon
    mix on speed 4 for little bit
    leave on speed 4 and drizzle in 250g of oil over 4-6minutes (with the MC cap on)
    add egg white and mix for another 10 seconds on speed 4

  2. I didn't think Paleo food had added sugar?

  3. Coconut sugar is OK

  4. Tried the top recipe but made half the quantity - absolutely wonderful. Will try the mayo one later today.
