Lavender Vinaigrette is a wonderful flavor during summer months, its lively flavor is refreshing and light, perfect for hot days. This particular recipe is a favorite among Young Living (YL) essential oil user’s and over the years a hit at the YL Lavender Harvests.
- 2/3 cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon culinary lavender buds (ground fine) -or- a toothpick* amount of lavender essential oil**
Whisk together ingredients and pour over salad.
*Toothpick Method: To have better control over the amount of essential oil you’re putting in a recipe, and for a more subtle flavor and/or those smaller portions: dip a tooth pick into the center hole of the dripper cap on your bottle of YL Lavender oil, then swirl the essential oil dipped tooth pick in your food, taste. If your recipe needs more flavor simply repeat the toothpick method. Putting too much essential oil in your food could ruin the flavor, so use a very light hand. More tips, equivalents, and guidelines on cooking with essential oils.
**Quality: I only use and recommend YL essential oils in cooking and flavoring foods as they are superior, food grade essential oils; 98 percent of all essential oils in the world do NOT fall into this high quality level.
