"Sustainable" Herb dressings & sauces

Herb dressings are a great way to use up leftover herb stems and leaves.

We already give a few examples in our article on using cutting waste. This article focuses on specific dressings that are simple, tasty and sustainable. We share a number of dressings and what you can use it for. 

Oil dressings

You can use any oil you like for an oil dressing, such as olive oil or walnut oil. Below are 3 examples:


  1. Mix fresh Italian herbs such as rosemary, oregano, thyme and basil with salt, pepper and garlic. It is a nice dressing for pasta, pasta salads or potato slices.
  2. Leave lemon zest or peels in an oil for a fresh taste over fried fish, salads, pasta and rice dishes.
  3. Mix fresh garlic with salt and Italian herbs in oil for a bread dip with the tapenade.

Other dressings

Other dressings that you can make with trimmings are:

  1. Blend broccoli stems and mix with chili, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt. This dressing goes well with fried white fish.
  2. Mix Greek yogurt with garlic and fresh green herbs. It can be used as a dressing for salads and as a sauce for vegetables.
  3. The combination of Greek yogurt with cucumber, onion, garlic and lemon is also a sauce that you can use as a salad dressing or for a sandwich. Mix balsamic vinegar with tomato pieces and garlic for a marinade with the salmon.
