This dressing is perfect for salad greens or over warm new potatoes. Recipe from http://britishfood.about.com. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur is a popular brand of Elderflower cordial (unless you want to be smart and make your own using French Tart's Prelude to Summer - Old Fashioned English Elderflower Cordial here on Zaar).
- 1⁄2 cup elderflower cordial (I add a little extra)
- 1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use a lighter flavored olive oil so as not to overpower the cordial)
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar (apple cider vinegar works well too)
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Place all the ingredients in a screw top jar, screw on the lid and shake vigorously until the all the ingredients are incorporated and creamy.
- Serve immediately on baby leaf salads or as a dressing on hot new potatoes. The dressing also makes a good light sauce for fish or baked chicken.
This was a huge hit! Dh & I both thought it a bit sweet. I added an extra tsp. of dijon & dh thinks perhaps cut back on the honey as well. I added s&p, too. THE PICKY ONE was in heaven with this, lol, because of the sweetness. I wondered what the St. Germain would taste like but it's wonderful! WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL! Thanl you so much for sharing this recipe, JB. Made for ZWT8.
Sorry, I thought I'd love this since I love St. Germain liqueur, but I did not like the dressing. Thank you for posting, though. Made for ZWT8.
Yum-o! I'm obsessed with Elderflower Liqueur ever since I bought a bottle to try a hot toddy recipe. This is a great way to use it and easy to make. I used apple cider vinegar (and added a little extra after tasting). I thought that the elderflower flavor would be subtle in this recipe, but it shines through. I served it on spring mix greens. I can't wait to try it on potatoes, tofu, etc. Made for "Adopt a Veggie Tag."
