Are you guilty of dousing your salads in pre-made salad dressings?
You may be surprised to know that many commercial dressings are laden with sugar, preservatives, artificial flavours and trans fats… which is why you need to check the ingredients before pouring anything on to your vitamin-rich greens!
Having said that, I’ve compiled some recipes for you that are so simple you’ll never need to buy another bottle of salad dressing.
Super Simple Dressing: Free pour good quality olive oil, sea salt and a squeeze of lemon
Simple Dressing: Free pour macadamia oil, apple cider vinegar, sea salt and squeeze of lemon
Avocado dressing: In a food processor combine 1 x ripe avocado, juice of half a lemon, 2 x garlic cloves, sea salt and pepper and a handful of fresh basil (see below served with steamed zucchini ribbons)
Balsamic dressing: Put in a jar and shake 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, 1 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar, good squeeze lemon, 1 teaspoon honey and salt and pepper.
Mustard dressing: Whisk together 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar and 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper.
Asian dressing: Put in a jar and shake – 1/4 cup lemon/lime juice, 1 x tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon tamari (similar to soy sauce), 1 1/2 tablespoon water, 1 seeded and finely chopped red chilli and 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped coriander
Curry Sauce: Combine a couple of tablespoons of natural yogurt, 1 teaspoon curry powder, a hint of honey and finely chopped mint, coriander or parsley. Great on salad, roast veggies, lentils and legumes or chicken.
I hope you’ve found a few recipes you might like, and are feeling inspired to give up the bottled salad dressing for a healthier, tastier alternative!
