Most bottled salad dressings are so unhealthy… full of sugar, fat and preservatives. Making your own is much healthier and easy to do.
Here are a few that I enjoy:
Honey Lime Dressing

Spicy Honey Mustard
Whisk 2 tsp each honey and dijon mustard, 2 tbsp lime juice, and 1/2 tsp each lime zest and kosher salt. Gradually whisk in 1/4 cup each olive oil and canola oil, then add 2 tsp chopped thyme and 1/2 minced jalapeno. (courtesy of The Food Network)
Oil-Free/Balsamic-Free Italian Vinaigrette Dressing
2 1/2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp organic dijon mustard, 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt, 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 cup filtered water (courtesy of Kimberly Synder)
Questions for today:
Do you usually make your own dressing or buy it?
What’s your favorite type of salad dressing?
