Eva Amurri shares 4 Salad Dressings to Make at Home

It’s around this time of year that I get back into eating big salads at meal times! Not for every meal, of course, but I start to crave fresh veggies in the spring, and it’s a great time to be celebrating all the beautiful produce that’s on the shelves. Over the years, I’ve developed quite a library of salad dressings that I love…and I’m a BIG dressing gal. I’m definitely not one who enjoys eating my salad with just a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of olive oil! I like mixing up these dressings to have in my fridge, because they’re easy, healthy, and really make me reach for my greens more than if I don’t have them on hand. The Cilantro Lime dressing is also a great one for over fish and grilled veggies! I sometimes use my Mama’s Vinaigrette as a super simple marinade for chicken before you put it on the grill. Try these all out, and let me know which are your faves!

Directions…

For each dressing, place all ingredients into the mason jar and shake until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly, or pour all ingredients into a blender and pulse until all ingredients are combined well.

Mama's Vinaigrette

This homemade vinaigrette is my go-to dressing that I make from scratch. It contains only 7 ingredients and is very easy to make.

Greek Salad Dressing

This dressing is so smooth and light but is bursting with flavor. Such a great option to go with an antipasto or chef salad.
