With the weather warming up and the increasing desire to shed winter layers, I thought I’d remind you of the fantastic salad dressing recipes here on HLW.
“Crack” Salad Dressing - as in, totally addictive. A simple dijon vinaigrette that has me looking for excuses to eat salad.
Roasted Red Pepper Dressing - also low fat, since it uses pureed red peppers to replace a lot of the oil. Nice if you aren’t into fruity dressings.
Healthier Asian Salad Dressing - great if you have a lot of random veggies to use up; just chop them and drown them in this dressing with some tofu, tempeh, or meat of choice. Garnish with cashews, scallions, and cilantro, and you’ve got a delicious meal!
You can also make a runny pesto and use as a dressing, or do the same with hummus. If you’re looking for a way to make pourable hummus, add a jar of (drained) roasted bell peppers or sun-dried tomatoes and blend.
