Thank you so much for this great article. I have been making my own salad dressing for quite a while now as I follow a yeast free diet and most of the store bought salad dressing are all off limits. One exception is Annie's Natural Lemon and Chive dressing which I was lucky enough to find in at Whole Foods. Even though this option is available to me I still prefer to make my own salad dressing. My favorite oils to use listed in order of preference are grapeseed, safflower and olive. I use lemon juice instead of vinegar and use a variety of seasonings. If I am dining out I just request some lemon wedges and olive oil and I use salt and pepper to season. Thanks again for the great artcle you have given me some great ideas to create new dressings.

THIS IS A GREAT WEBSITE. MY QUESTION IS: I HAVE USED HEINZ APPLE CIDAR VINEGAR FOR YEARS IN HOMEMADE SALAD DRESSING. HOWEVER, IN RECENT MONTHS I THINK ITS TASTE HAS DIMINISHED. BECASE OF OUR ECONOMY, IS IT POSSIBLE THAT IT HAS BEEN DILUTED, FOR IT DOESN'T PACK THE SAME PUNCH? I THINK IT HAS, JUST AS MOST CHOCOLATE DOES NOT TASTE THE SAME EITHER UNLESS IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE CHOCOLATE. I AM INTERESTED IN RECEIVING AN ANSWER---IT COULD ALL BE MY IMAGINATION! THANK YOU.

I love your salad bar and deli. I visit them a lot both in my home town of Portland, OR and whenever I travel. But i can't eat many of your deli items or any of your salad dressings. I'd like to request ingredients that are GMO-free, with no extracted oils (as recommended by the Engine Diet), and no sugars or glycemic sweeteners. Most of your salad dressings are made with GMO soy and contain sugars, which are not part of a healthy diet, and cause a sugar-rush. Thank you!

@HILLARY - The dressings on the salad bar will differ between stores. It is either a packaged dressing or made in house. Check with your local store for details and if it's made in house they will be happy to share a recipe if they have one!
