Salad Dressings

Once you discover how easy it is to make your own salad dressing and how delicious and fresh homemade tastes, those bottled dressings from the store will lose their luster. Making homemade salad dressing is a simple matter of combining a few
liquid ingredients (such as oil, vinegar, lemon juice, etc.), herbs and/or spices, and maybe one or more thickening agents (such as mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, peanut butter, avocado, etc.) then whisking those ingredients in a bowl or shaking them in a jar. Better yet, chances are you already have most ingredients in your pantry and/or fridge.

Though the salad dressings on this page can be also found on the individual salad recipes on the Salads page, these salad dressing recipes can be used with any leafy greens or any other type of salad that is well complimented by salad dressing. Salad dressings with thicker consistencies such as Avocado Lemon Dill, Yogurt Avocado, Chipotle Ranch and Zesty Ranch can also be used as dips for fresh vegetables as an appetizer or snack. Once you try making your own homemade salad dressing, you may never go back!
