In my previous blog post I shared some photos from inside the Eau Claire Oil & Vinegar bar – a clean, stylish shop in Eau Claire market. Today I’m going to share just a few quick photos of some of the salads I’ve put together using their product for dressings.
I don’t really LIKE to eat salad a lot – not that it’s not tasty.. it just gets BORING after a while. Putting these oils and vinegars (ok.. way more vinegar than oil.. I love the ZING) along with some delicious creamy goat cheese makes any salad WAY more interesting for me.
This is tomatoes, goat cheese, and leftover beets from the previous night’s dinner over mixed greens, with blackberry-ginger balsamic vinegar along with blood orange EVOO. YUM!
My friend doesn’t like mushrooms… but I like them, so I tossed mushrooms into MY salad.. but left them out for him. Red pepper gives lots of colour, goat cheese, and spinach are topped off with the Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil mixed with Pomegranate Dark Balsamic vinegar. YUM!
Finally one more – this is a salad with green, yellow, and red mini tomatoes, goat cheese…. & amazing dressing made with blackberry-ginger balsamic & blood orange evoo. It’s served up in my gorgeous hand-made blue pottery bowl that I got from an artisan’s show a while back.
I also picked up a few more flavours recently… now I need to find the perfect dish to try out the Dark Chocolate Dark Balsamic vinegar too…. it tastes so yummy just on it’s own. Ice cream maybe? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
