Three #SimpleSeasoning Dressings to Brighten up your Summer Salads

The season of park picnics, garden dinner parties and beach BBQs is here and we couldn’t be happier about it! To get into the summer spirit we asked our friend Laura (@food_stylist) to create some easy-to-make dressings to help shake up your salads.

Whether it’s your job to bring along the side-dish, or you’ve just got some leftovers that need some extra love, these simple dressings are perfect for a quick and tasty flavour fix.

All three work well with our classic Sea Salt Crystals as a base, and then you can mix and match with our Simple Seasoning blends depending on what you fancy- or get creative and experiment with what you have in the cupboard.


Chilli & Citrus Dressing

3 tsp. chilli flakes 

2 lemons or limes, zest & juice 

50g olive oil 

½ garlic clove, minced 

25g honey 

Small pinch of Cornish Sea Salt Crystals

Cornish Sea Salt Chilli Hit or Fresh & Zesty, to taste

Add everything to a jam jar & shake it like you mean it. Taste & adjust the seasoning to your liking (especially if you prefer things on the spicier side!).


Rocket & Pumpkin Seed Pesto 

50g rocket 

25g pumpkin seeds 

1 garlic clove minced or 10g wild garlic  

5 tbsp. Olive oil 

2 tbsp. water 

1 lemon – zest & juice 

20g parmesan

Small pinch of Cornish Sea Sat Crystals

Cornish Sea Salt & Peppery, to taste

Simply add all your ingredients to a blender & blitz until it’s as smooth or chunky as you want it. Taste & adjust the seasoning to your liking.


Tahini, Lemon & Yoghurt Dressing

30g tahini 

30g yoghurt 

15g sesame oil 

½ lemon, juice & zest 

2 tbsp. water 

½ garlic clove, minced 

Small pinch of Cornish Sea Salt Crystals

Cornish Sea Salt Really Garlicky, to taste

Bringing back your trusty jam jar, mix all your ingredients together & shake shake shake. Add more oil if you’d like it thinner, or tahini if you want to thicken it up.

Simple, tasty, and using bits and bobs you probably already have at home!

Keep your eyes peeled for some brand-new recipes coming soon, where we’ll show you how we like to use these dressings, as well as give you loads of other fresh ideas for summer.
