These Salad Days

I did a catering job before Christmas and was lucky enough to pick the salad greens fresh from the garden with the added bonus of a lush crop of borage flowers to mix with the blue and green that should never be seen without a colour-in-between (a rule I break frequently). I can't resist these two colours together, so springtime! Borage, once established in a comfy spot literally grows like a weed, and the blossoms are culinary stars; try them sprinkled over a homegrown tomato salad… now there's a colour combination! They are picture perfect on top of an iced cup cake or sprinkled over a lemon syrup cake. But today let's focus on salad, here's the recipe for a super simple, totally delicious dressing; two ingredients plus seasoning, quick as a flash!

1/3 Cup Forum chardonnay vinegar, available at Simon Johnson Stores

2/3 Cup Little General extra virgin olive oil

Murray River Pink salt flakes

Freshly ground white pepper

Whisk oil and vinegar in a bowl until combined, season to taste, pour onto salad. This dressing can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
