A vinaigrette is a classic dressing, essential in any kitchen. The basic ingredients are a mixture of three parts olive oil to every part of vinegar, after which spices or condiments such as mustard are added. For the Oil & Vinegar Pesto Vinaigrette, green pesto, a whiff of basil and garlic make the flavorings in this classic recipe. This creates a unique, aromatic and delightful flavor. The pesto vinaigrette can also be used with various bites and more substantial dishes. Do shake well before use, so that the ingredients are mixed properly.
Goes well on mixed green salads, as vegetable dip or especially taste dribbled over an appetizer of tomato and mozzarella. Combining it with chicken, fish or meat also works very well.
One of our favorite dishes is the pasta salad with tuna, tomato and pine nuts. Boil 200 gram of pasta al dente, rinse it in cold water and leave to strain. Add 2 cans of tuna chunks in oil, 1 onion cut into rings, 10 deseeded black olives, 2 peeled tomatoes in chunks and 2 tablespoons of Pesto Vinaigrette. Garnish with 4 tablespoons of pine nuts, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a cup of grated parmesan cheese and presto! Your authentic, Italian dish is ready!
