Orange & Coriander Seed Dressing

Orange & Coriander Seed Dressing

Floral and nutty and fruity, all together at last! This makes a lovely salad dressing to serve with your favourite lettuces, soft cheese (like fresh mozzarella or goat’s cheese) and a piece of bread. But it’s also delightful to alternate olive oil and balsamic vinegar as a dip for bread.


  • 3 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1 TBSP Coriander Seed, lightly toasted and crushed in a pestle and mortar
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Orange Juice and Zest from one small Orange
  • 2 tsp Sherry Vinegar (or sweet white wine vinegar)
  • ½ TBSP Honey
  • a pinch of Salt
  • 1 tsp of Mint, fresh/ chiffonade cut *Optional


  1. Combine all the ingredients except the mint (if using) and whisk together well.
  2. Use as a salad dressing with lettuces, bits of orange, heart of palm and soft cheese. Or serve on a plate alongside fresh bread.



Replace the olive oil with butter, double the honey and omit the vinegar. Top with toasted almonds as a butter board.
