These 3 healthy summer salad dressings will cover your lettuce in sweet summer deliciousness so you can stay healthy and satisfied in the hot sunny days to come.
For all the savoury lovers out there, yes I’m talking to you – potato chip and pretzels snackers – this creamy Lemon Garlic Tahini Dressing will blow your mind. It’s savoury with a touch of honey sweetness and the best part is; it has no dairy! Pour this over any salad, or dip your veggies, wraps or chicken wings in it instead of that typical store bought blandness. This Tahini dressing is so versatile that you can really add it to anything, even pasta salad! It’s all up to you and your imagination.
If you’re more of a sweets kind of person, check out my Blackberry Balsamic salad dressing. It’s insane how well the flavours pair together to make a sweet and tangy blend that tastes incredible on a bed of greens. This dressing is also the easiest to prepare out of the three I’m giving you today, since all you have to do is mash up the berries and then shake everything up into a mason jar. Who said deliciousness needs to be lots of work!
Now, if you’re an in-between person like myself who swings between sweet and salty, then this Orange Basil + Mint Vinaigrette dressing is just for you. I cannot tell you how amazingly delicious and unique this tastes. The freshness from the orange works so well with the fresh herbs. This is seriously one of the best sweet and savoury dressing combos you’ll try, trust me! This dressing basically works with any salad and I know when you try it, you’ll love it, even if you think it sounds a bit out of your comfort zone.
There you have it, three healthified, vibrant and flavourful salad dressings that will turn anyone into a salad lover- guaranteed. So this summer, ditch the store bought dressings that are packed with a bunch of gross, unnecessary ingredients and enjoy my recipes instead. I promise, you’ll be so satisfied that you’ll never even look back at those store-bought versions ever again.
