How to make a real French salad dressing

Have you ever read the ingredients on a bottle of store-bought salad dressing? Preservatives, corn starch, sugar, flavourings, stabilisers, vegetable oils, colourants, and flavour enhancers, are just a few dodgy items that come to mind.

Jonno’s tip: if the dressing has separated in the bottle, it means it’s real. To emulsify it again, use your stick blender to blitz it all back together. One look at those congealed dressings in the plastic bottles and you know they contain a lot of suspect ingredients.

In this cooking lesson Jonno teaches you how to make a proper French salad dressing as well as a herb dressing, so you’ll never have to worry about fake salad dressings again.
