Salad dressing love


I need to up my game when it comes to salad dressing. I’m pretty predictable. I make a vinaigrette every time. There is some variety in the spices but not that much. Salad dressing is inexpensive to make (unless you get caught up in fancy vinegar and oils) and pretty easy as well. I’ve done a peruse on Pinterest and narrowed it down to five recipes to try. I’m still on the lookout for a good ranch dressing recipe. I’m pretty sure that if I substitute Greek yogurt for mayonnaise and buttermilk it will work well. I just need to play with the spices.

Mamma Allegra’s Vinaigrette – I would probably reduce the sugar a bit

Honey Mustard Vinaigrette – on Premeditated Leftovers (love the blog name)

Homemade Italian Dressing Mix – this will be a big time saver

Paleo Italian Salad Dressing

Carrot, Miso and Ginger Salad Dressing – I can’t wait to try this

Dressing ingredient substitutions

  • buttermilk –> Greek yogurt
  • Mayonnaise –> whipped tofu (as in put soft tofu in the blender)
  • Mayonnaise –> yogurt
  • Tahini –> sesame paste (nerigoma 練りゴマ)
