Hi Kat - Thank you so much! You most definitely can make this without oil. I hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by. 🙂
Hi, I didn't have all the ingredients but decided to make this anyways, and it was really good! The flavour combination of apple cider vinegar, sunflower and turmeric was really nice and I'm sure that it would be even better if I had fully followed the recipe!
Will make again, thanks for sharing.
