Simply Homemade: 7 Fresh Ways to Dress Your Salad

By aggieskitchen |


I seem to have a love-hate relationship with salad. I love eating them, love how good they taste, love how good they are for me…but hate making them. It doesn’t make sense really.

When I find myself in a salad rut, I look for inspiration to liven up the taste buds a bit. I’ve noticed that my salad dressing is usually what drives the type of salad I’m going to make so it’s nice to have a little repertoire of tasty homemade salad dressings to fall back on. For instance, if I’m in the mood for something really fresh and bright, I tend to crave Mexican flavors, so a cilantro-lime vinaigrette would be a perfect way to dress a healthy, taco-less taco salad. Or have you thought of making your own homemade, lighter version of blue cheese dressing for those buffalo chicken (salad) cravings? It’s so much easier than you think.

If you are finding yourself in a salad rut these days and need some inspiration…be sure to take a look at these 7 fresh and tasty salad dressings you can easily make at home.

Strawberry season is right around the corner, or already here for those of us in the South. I love using fresh strawberries to brighten up dressings and salads like this one.
