Classic Salad Dressings

These are our top five classics, a handful of goodies. This is not a comprehensive list of the salad dressing cannon, but the ones you know will always hit the spot. We’ll call these the salad dressing foundation, upon which you can start building once you get these under your belt.

Creamy Salad Dressings

We like these dressings because they’re great on salads, but also great drizzled over grain bowls, or as a dip for your next crudité platter. Add these to your repertoire when you’re looking for something to add a little extra oomph.

Easy Homemade Salad Dressings

Sometimes we need a dressing we can whisk up in little to no time. These dressings are there for you when you’re hangry, staring into the fridge wondering what you’re going to eat. They’re the dressings that give so much with a very low lift to make. We consider these dressings to be as reliable and effective as a good tube of red lipstick.

Herb Salad Dressings

We’re getting fresh with these salad dressings. Full of herbs and tangy bold flavors, a homemade salad dressing with lemon is sure to add sunshine and elicit an audible “yum” when you drizzle it on your next salad party.
