The Easy Tip Giada De Laurentiis Has For Mouthwatering Salad Dressing
By Kalea Martin
You can add an assortment of herbs, spices, and emulsifiers to upgrade a vinaigrette, but Giada De Laurentiis swears by using infused olive oil and wildflower honey.
Infused olive oil is made by allowing aromatics such as garlic, rosemary, or chili peppers to sit in olive oil until it becomes infused with their flavors.
Wildflower honey, unlike regular honey, comes from bees that pollinate not just clovers but all kinds of wildflowers. However, the impact of these swaps will be subtle.
De Laurentiis’ go-to garlic-infused olive oil incorporates a subtle garlic flavor into your salad rather than potentially overwhelming it with the intensity of raw garlic.
Wildflower honey has a naturally strong flavor, but it’s not too sugary, which allows it to give a vinaigrette dressing much more dimension.
