Here’s Our Top 5 Salad Dressings of all time
Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette
Sweeten up your salad while keeping it healthy by using a touch of maple syrup! It’s the healthy alternative to adding refined sugar and gives the dressing a really good balance.
Healthy Ranch Dressing
Who doesn’t love a ranch? Rich, creamy and garlicky. Try this one on for size, you won’t be craving unhealthy ranch anymore that’s for sure! Regina, the creator of this recipe suggests using organic goat’s milk yogurt, which is very nutritious and easier to digest than cows milk! Bonus health points.
Pete Evan’s Paleo Sesame Dressing
This dressing takes only a minute to make, and it’s perfectly paired with a cucumber noodle salad. The ingredients – tahini, lemon, garlic, sesame and tamari – bring the cucumbers to life giving you a punchy fresh and healthy salad.
Spicy Citrus Dressing
This beautiful fresh dressing made with the juice of tangerines and oranges and kicked up a notch with a pinch of cayenne pepper and garlic. Throw it through a quinoa and feta salad for an experience you won’t regret!
Chipotle Lime Dressing
This salad dressing is sublime. The adobo gives it a rich gorgeous flavour and the chipotle the perfect amount of spice to make your salad exciting. We seriously recommend pairing it with the salad that goes along with this recipe, it has everything. Sweetness from the mango, spice from the chipotle, creaminess from the avocado and texture from the smoky pepitas. It’s filling and healthy and YUM.
