What is the healthiest dressing for salad?
Healthy is a relative term, but to me a vinaigrette like this one tends to be the healthiest for salads. Even better if it’s homemade! You know exactly what goes into it and the ingredients are fresh and real.
How do you make salad dressing from scratch?
Start by adding all of the dressing ingredients to a jar with a lid. Close the lid and shake the jar really well until all of the ingredients are mixed together and the oil and vinegar aren’t separated.
If you don’t have a lid with a jar you can use a bowl with a whisk as well! It’s so simple to make homemade salad dressing at home. It’s pretty much all we do now!
