Homemade Salad Dressings

Although it might seem daunting to create your own dressing, it couldn’t be easier! All you need is a whisk and a bowl, or you can make it even easier with a food processor.

We consider summer to be salad season. It’s not just because it’s too darn hot to turn on the oven or stove — there’s so many fresh veggies around that we can’t help eating as many as possible, and salads are a great vehicle for that.

Of course, what’s a salad without its dressing? Homemade dressings perk up any salad, from a classic lettuce salad to three bean to tomato. Although it might seem daunting to create your own dressing, it couldn’t be easier! All you need is a whisk and a bowl, or you can make it even easier with a food processor. Or DIY it up and shake your dressing together in a covered jar. You only need a few minutes for dressing bliss.

Once you go homemade, you’ll wonder why you bothered with the premade stuff. And it will give you ample opportunity for experimentation — try different herbs or alternate vinegars for a flavor punch.
