Each week, I pick up my bag of organic produce from our nearby healthy eatery and find renewed inspiration to mix up some fresh picked greens with my homemade salad dressing. I love that my produce is local and sustainably grown and that the ingredients in my salad dressing are natural. I’m not a purist, but, I do appreciate healthy food that doesn’t require learning ingredient names with a dictionary.
Making your own dressing is simple and fun to personalize. You can almost never mess it up, even if you don’t use a measuring spoon. Mix it in a cruet or use any small sealed container to shake it up one last time before adding to your salad.
The following is one of my favorite dressing recipes that I keep on hand for the summer.
