Dressing alternatives to Garlic Aioli.
If you’re thinking you would find the garlic aioli a little too strong (or you’re not a fan), whipping up a simple, tasty dressing is easy.
Combine 3 tablespoons of Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons or Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 teaspoon of caster sugar, 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard in a wide mixing bowl and whisk until the dressing is creamy and thick. If you don’t have a whisk, pop all the dressing ingredients into a small glass jar or a plastic container with a tightly fitting lid and shake like mad.

Ingredients (serves 6 | makes 1 Family Salad)
- 8 Dutch Carrots, peeled with small stems remaining
- 6 Baby Radish, cut in half with small stems remaining
- 1/2 Small Cauliflower, cut into florets
- Handful Cherry Tomatoes
- 2 cups Baby Spinach & Rocket Salad Mix
- 1/4 Purple Cabbage, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fruity Taste
- 1 tsp White Pepper
- 1 tsp Honey
- 3 large slices Sourdough Bread, preferably a few days old
- 1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
- 2 tbsps Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fruity Taste
- 1 Whole Egg
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1 large clove Garlic
- 1 cup Bertolli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fruity Taste
- 1 tsp Sea Salt Flakes
- ROAST THE VEGETABLES: Preheat oven to 220.C Peel the carrots, cut the radish and brussel sprouts in half, cut the cauliflower into small florets. Place these into a large bowl and coat with a 1/2 cup Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic Fruity Taste, a little flaked sea salt, white pepper and a drizzle of honey. Toss well and then spread onto a large baking tray. Bake for 10 - 15mins (or long enough for the vegetables to brown slightly but still be crisp).
- TOAST THE SOURDOUGH CRUMB: Place chunks of the sourdough bread into a food processor and whizz until you have large crumbs (or break up by hand). Add the olive oil to a non stick pan and bring to a moderate heat. Toast the bread crumbs and the slivered almonds until lightly browned and crispy.
- MAKE THE GARLIC AIOLI: Combine the egg, egg yolk, garlic and salt and whizz on full speed in your food processor. Add the olive oil in a very slow and steady stream while the food processor is on. If there is no opening at the top of the food processor, add 2 tablespoons at a time and whizz in between. Once all the oil has been combined, you should have a thick, creamy aioli that sit sit firmly on a spoon. If not, process for another minute.
- ASSEMBLE THE SALAD: Place the Baby Spinach, Rocket, Cherry Tomatoes and purple cabbage onto a large platter then add the Winter veges. Toss gently then drizzle with a little olive oil and a teaspoon of honey. Serve with the garlic aioli in a small bowl alongside.
