Salad dressing is one of those things that slick marketing has convinced us we can’t make at home. Just go to your local grocery store and you’ll find hundreds of options right at your fingertips, but the possibilities really go beyond what you’ll find at the store. From your basic ranch dressing to mouthwatering strawberry poppy seed dressing (#3 below), homemade salad dressing is fairly simple to whip up on your own.

As an added bonus, even though it doesn’t keep as long as the bottled stuff, you can easily make small batches for a fraction of the cost so you’re not stuck with the same options day in and day out!

     Just finished eating my salad with homemade dressing. :) 2 cloves garlic (thru press), 1/2 tsp Oregano, 1/2 tsp basil, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 4 packets splenda, 1/2 cup canola oil & 1/2 c basalmic vinegar. Salad is Spinach, cranberries, feta & pumpkin seeds. YUM~

    What a great roundup. I totally agree with you. Store-bought dressing is nowhere near as tasty, costs more, and isn’t as good for you. I always make my own and look forward to adding these to my repertoire.
