Dress Up Your Salads and Other Dishes With These 5 Delicious Dressing Recipes

Salad Dressing Recipes 1

Bottled salad dressings and marinades typically found in stores are loaded with far too many artificial ingredients, and quite frankly, fall short in the taste department. You can easily jazz up your favorite vegetable salads, pasta salads, potato salads, veggies and other dishes by quickly whipping up some of these taste-popping dressings in just mere minutes.

Keep Salad Dressings Stored in Mason Jars

Any of the following delicious dressing recipes can be doubled or tripled for larger quantities, and stored in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week. I personally like to keep them stored in mason jars, and then just shake gently before using. Made with nothing more than 100% natural and easy to find ingredients, you can whip up a crowd pleasing dressing anytime, making any recipe ‘pop’ with extra flavor.

Asian Dressing

1/2 cup good quality olive oil
1/4 cup orange juice (preferably fresh squeezed)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon brown mustard
sea salt (to taste)

You can either combine all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until well blended, or put ingredients into a blender (or bullet blender) and puree until smooth and well combined.
Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
6 tablespoons plain Greek style yogurt
3 tablespoons good quality olive oil
3 tablespoons raw honey (do not use commercially processed honey)
3 tablespoons brown mustard
1 tablespoon Braggs liquid aminos (may substitute with Tamari or regular soy sauce)

Zesty Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

2/3 cup good quality olive oil
6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons brown mustard
2 fresh garlic cloves (minced)
sea salt and black pepper (to taste)
drizzle of water (as needed, to reach desired consistency)

You can either combine all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until well blended, or put ingredients into a blender (or bullet blender) and puree until smooth and well combined.

Chipotle Vinaigrette Dressing

2/3 cup good quality olive oil
6 tablespoons lime juice (preferably fresh squeezed)
2 minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

2-3 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
2 fresh garlic cloves (minced)
sea salt and black pepper (to taste)

Combine all of the ingredients into a blender (or bullet blender) and puree until well blended. This can also be made by whisking the ingredients together in a mixing bowl, just be sure to whisk well enough to properly combine and breakdown the ingredients.

Creamy Indian Curry Dressing

1-1/2 cup plain yogurt (preferably full-fat)
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
sea salt and black pepper (to taste)

Combine all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
