Honey and Beer Salad Dressing
The following recipe might strike you as being very unusual and that is because it is. You can serve the following beer salad dressing over mixed salad leaves. It is also great served with grilled or cold poached salmon. The honey and balsamic vinegar give it sweetness, the basil, garlic and lemon pepper add aromatic flavors and the other ingredients round out the flavor of this delicious beer salad dressing.
Whether this unique salad dressing was the result of someone accidentally spilling beer into their salad dressing, tasting it, and realizing the result was good or a deliberate attempt to incorporate beer into a dressing, the flavor of this is surprisingly refreshing. All the ingredients work well together and you can either make this in a blender or just shake the ingredients together in a jar. Swap the fresh basil for dried basil if that is all you have.
So is this dressing going to taste like beer? Actually you will be able to taste the warm, yeasty flavor because there is beer in there, but when you factor in the other ingredients, you can see the beer is a complementary ingredient rather than the main one. Your salad is not going to taste like you accidentally spilt your beer over it! If you are curious about how this does taste, give the recipe a try, and enjoy the warm early flavors along with the aromatic fresh basil, tasty lemon pepper and the rest.
