  1. Whisk the ingredients together in a glass jar and leave the flavours to infuse for at least 30 minutes before using. Taste and add another splash of red wine vinegar or a squeeze of lemon juice if desired.
    Italian dressing storage tip: Store in the fridge for up to three weeks. You might find that the olive oil turns solid in the fridge. Just bring the dressing up to room temperature for 30 minutes and then stir well before using.

Buying Tips

Garlic infused oil is found in the oil section of your local supermarket. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic. You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil, until they are golden and fragrant (then remove the garlic before you continue cooking your meal). This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.

Check your dried chilli flakes do not contain onion or garlic powder.

Gluten Free Tips

Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
