I'm huge fan of homemade salads but I prefer to enjoy salads with clean and flavorful salad dressings. Bottled salad dressing can be convenient but are usually full of salt, sugar, oils or lack the flavor and fresh ingredients. So, for my homemade salads, I always make a fresh dressing using simple and easy-to-find clean ingredients.
The best thing about making salad dressings at home is that these can be made several days ahead and kept in the fridge. Like I make 1 or 2 dressings over the weekend and then we are able to easily enjoy salads for lunch whole week.
Initially, I planned to share with you just top 10 Vinaigrette/Salad Dressings from my blog archive.... However, as I flipped through salads pages of my blog, I felt like to share every dressing I have posted so far. Somehow, I stopped at my top 15 favorites. If you want to explore more.... Honestly there are plenty more salad dressings on my blog, each one unique, flavorful and simple. Check out these Salad Pages to explore more homemade dressing options.
A lot of the dressing listed below are vegan with just one simple change of replacing honey with agave syrup. For any dressing calling for creamy, you can use Coconut Cream or Tahini Paste.
All dressing will be ready in 15 minutes or less. Bonus? Each one of these come with a recipe to try! I have always posted dressing with a salad... So, just follow the link to Salad Recipe, and Vinaigrette Dressings are listed independently in the ingredient list, very easy to locate.
I hope you enjoying your weekend so far and had great Valentine's Day with your loved ones :)
Let's make some simple dressing and enjoy a healthy does of salads whole week!
