Homemade dressings and sauces

If you tend to buy shop-bought – stop right there. It’s so easy to make your own dressings and sauces like vinaigrettes, dips and mayonnaises – and you can easily adjust the flavours to suit your taste. We’ve also popped in a homemade butter, you could try that in your homemade hollandaise!
