Nut Oil Recipes

Editorial Team | September 21, 2023 | 0 comment |

Nut oils are rich in anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids and the cold-pressed ones we have in our store and good enough to glug from the bottle. Most of them do not have a high smoke point so are best used as a finishing oil or in salad dressings. Some, like the Black Sesame Oil, has a smoke point high enough for cooking. These oils are pricey, but in terms of their quality and benefits, they are in a different league from the ultra-processed industrial vegetable oils. So if you can, think of adding a little into your diet. Some of these are cold-pressed right here in Tabanan, though the origin of the raw product depends.

Flaxseed Oil Salad Dressing


• 1/4 cup flaxseed oil
• 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
• 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
• Salt and pepper to taste
• Optional: 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup for sweetness


1. In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the flaxseed oil, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, and Dijon mustard.
2. Add minced garlic, if using.
3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. For added sweetness, include honey or maple syrup if desired.
5. Shake or whisk well before drizzling over your favorite salad.

This recipe is not just delicious but also a great way to incorporate the health benefits of flaxseed oil into your diet. Enjoy!
