Make Your Own Salad Dressings to Save

Filed under: ,

Did you know…

Making your own salad dressing can also save you up to 70% off buying at the store? And it’s easy too!

For a classic vinaigrette, start with one part ​vinegar (or citrus juice) to three parts ​oil. Sprinkle in a little salt and pepper, and with a few whisks, you’re done!

This mixture can be served as is, but if you’re feeling creative, break out the blender and it can also be used as a base to make an endless variety of dressings! To add some zing, add ingredients like mustard, garlic, olives or ginger (to name a few). For a sweeter palate, mix in some honey, jam or even fruit!

And if you want to get creamy with it, try adding a few spoonfuls of yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk, or even mayo. Don’t want the dairy? Blend in ripe avocado, nut butter or tahini paste for a richer texture, without the lactose.

Aside from being super low­cost, you’re also making a fresher, higher quality dressing ­ store bought dressings can be watered down, at your expense!

So open up the fridge and pantry and whip up your own salad dressing! Your savings are only a few whisks away.
