Elderflower Cordial

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

Elderflower cordial makes a wonderfully, refreshing summer drink but the cordial has other uses and also makes a stunning Elderflower vinaigrette recipe. Use this as you would any other vinaigrette for a delicious, light sweet dressing for your salads. It also makes a good light sauce for fish or baked chicken.

BK, I'm not giving stars because I changed the proportions drastically. I 1st cut it down from 2.5c to .5c. I was supposed to use 1/2c elderflower cordial, 1/8c evoo, 1/2TB vinegar, 1/2t honey, 1/2t dijon. I used 1/4c liqueur, 1/4c evoo, 1TB vin, 1t honey, 1t dijon, s&p. The amount of liqueur called for freaked me out a bit plus I wanted it a more balanced vinaigrette. I hope you don't mind. What I made was delicious! Everyone enjoyed it on a basic romaine salad. I can give stars for what I did if you like. I made this for Aussie Swap 4/14.
