7 simple Homemade Salad Dressing ideas to shake up your salad! Most are ready in minutes and use pantry ingredients. All are easy, fresh, and flavorful!
Today I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite salad dressings from around Culinary Hill. For the most part, they feature made-from-scratch ingredients including fresh herbs, tangy vinegars, and lots of olive oil. It’s so much cheaper to make your own salad dressing and they always taste better than what you can buy in a store!
(Dressings are listed below in the order you see in this picture immediately above)
I love this Cilantro-Lime Dressing. It’s smooth and creamy with the bright flavors of fresh cilantro leaves and sour lime juice. Get an extra boost of protein too: it’s made with Greek yogurt!
My Balsamic Vinaigrette is the best way to boost a healthy salad. It’s lightened up with water but full of flavor of fresh herbs, garlic, and honey. You’ll want to keep this one on hand all the time!
My all-time favorite salad dressing is Buttermilk Ranch, and this homemade version is the best there is. Featuring lots of fresh dill and parsley in creamy buttermilk, you’ll never be able to go back to the bottled stuff!
I hope you enjoyed this collection! May your days be filled with salads.
