Do you make your own salad dressing?
June 29, 2020 9:42am CST
I haven't made any salad dressings lately since I have so many bottles of the commercial stuff, but homemade dressings overall are healthier and sometimes cheaper too. I was looking online yesterday, and they had something like 47 different dressings you could make at home. I bookmarked it. I got a little discouraged though because like the first 10 were all vinagrettes, and other than raspberry vinagrette, I am not a big fan. What dressings do you like to make at home? Please share the recipe if you are so inclined.

The simplest that we use has olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper - that's it. I don't even measure any of it . . . . just whip it all up in a small bowl (I only make enough for that meal). Another one is a Chinese salad dressing - sweet - but we mainly only use it for when we have a strawberry and spinach salad (which isn't often).

I always make my dressing at home, olive oil and vinegar with some herbs, sometimes lemon and olive oil. If I want a creamy one I mix Greek yogurt, a little honey, olive oil, a bit of mustard, some herbs. There are so many we can do, it does not take long.
