Recipe: Salad Dressing Roundup

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.

Strawberry Balsamic Dressing - incidentally low fat, this is great for my Weight Watchers friends. Add crumbled feta, slices of pear or some craisins, and these Spicy Candied Nuts to really impress.

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.
