Healthy Salad Dressings Are Easy To Make!

Healthy Salad VeggiesEating a salad can be a great way to get some of the essential nutrients that your body needs, reduce your caloric intake and stay healthy!  The usual salad ingredients are full of fiber and water.  As a result, they'll cause you to feel a wee bit fuller so you’ll likely need less of a main course to complete your meal.
However, those store bought salad dressings can quickly sabotage your health and fitness efforts.  They're quite often full of unnecessary (hidden) sugars, fat, chemicals and preservatives.
So, for years now, I've been experimenting with various recipes for making my own dressings.  They're usually quite simple, quick to put together and not all that much harder than simply reaching into the fridge for that store-bought bottle, but MUCH healthier.

Healthy salad dressing chartIt's pretty simple to get started and you can experiment until you hit the right combination for your tastes.  It's also so much more fun making your own, and it will free you from worrying about expiration dates or ingredients that you can't pronounce.  And, you won't have all those extra bottles cluttering up your fridge shelves.

Check out this chart that was recently shared with me for some easy to read directions to get you started making your own healthier version of your favourite vinagrette dressing.  It suggests you use 60% oil (pick the healthy one you like, I use olive oil), 30% acids (i.e. balsamic vinegar or lemon juice) and 10% flavouring (one of my favourites is dijon mustard).  However, you don't have to be too exact in your measurements.  As well, you should switch up the ingredients (or mix and match ideas) then taste, taste, taste the results until you hit the right combination for you.
