Allspice Balsamic Vinaigrette

I don’t quite remember my first foray into allspice. Perhaps it was an Ottolenghi adventure but I do remember getting it and then wondering why on earth I had never heard of it before and felt robbed of years of not having it as a staple in my pantry!

Contrary to popular belief, allspice is not a blend of spices. I have to admit I did think that too. Allspice is in fact a berry. Related to the clove, it is native to the West Indies and Central America. Its flavours resemble that of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Now you see why it’s like adding teaspoons of pure joy into your dishes, which by the way is used in both sweet and savoury.

The berries are harvested when they are green, then fermented and then dried where upon they turn a reddish-brown colour. The most famous dishes that use allspice is in Mexican mole recipe and in Jamaican jerk seasoning.

Adding such lovely flavours into a salad dressing is such an easy way to lift a simple recipe. The allspice gives this otherwise basic balsamic vinaigrette some robust flavours and in turn just adds to your salad recipe.

Allspice Balsamic Vinaigrette Ingredients

Olive oil: Investing in good olive oil of salad dressings is imperative. It really does make a difference.

Balsamic vinegar: Gives the dressing that rich tart flavours.

Garlic: An added punch to the overall recipe. Crush it so all the flavours are released into the dressing.

Sugar: Yes, heading for a sweet flavour but of course can be omitted.

Allspice: Cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg flavours. Who could resist? You’ll be able to find allspice relatively easily in the spice section of your supermarket.

Allspice Balsamic Vinaigrette Method

Nice and simple. In a small mixing bowl, add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, sugar and allspice. Or just add it into a jar and give it a vigorous shake it make sure all the ingredients are mixed well.
