5 tasty salad dressings that will help you eat more salads

What’s the best way to eat your salad? drenched in salad dressing, of course.

OK, maybe not drenched, let’s go with drizzled instead. Lately, my husband and I have been trying to get healthier by eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t like to let loose once in a while and have some cake and ice cream (and no not the healthy kind), It means that we try our very best to eat healthy the majority of the time.

We are absolutely bombarded with chemicals from the air we breath, water we drink, electro-magnetic chaos we’re exposed to, and of course, the food we eat. So, the best way to combat this is to eat whole, raw foods as much as we can. However, everything should be enjoyed in moderation and in balance with everything else so It’s OK to enjoy that pumpkin pie you have sitting in your fridge, just don’t make it a habit.

One of the easiest ways to eat better is to consume 1-3 salads per day as a meal or in addition to your meal. Although this is something I have been trying to do for years, I never really enjoyed it. That’s because, I genuinely dislike most vegetables including leafy greens (shocking I know). It’s also because I never really knew which type of salad dressing to buy that wasn’t filled with sodium and/or preservatives. I would end up using just lemon and salt to season my salads…how boring!

Lately, I decided that if i was going to eat more salads, I needed to enjoy them, dammit. After trial and error, and lot’s of wasted ingredients, I finally found my top 5 go-to salad dressings which are clean, delicious, and most importantly, super easy to whip up.

I made each of these dressings in under 5 minutes using my  Nutri-Bullet. You can of course use any blender or food processor to make these dressings. Click each link below to view recipe and pictures!

    That’s a well-rounded list – I like the variety of styles you included. I’m saving these to try!
    My salad dressing is usually just a little olive oil, a splash of red wine vinegar, and S&P. It’s super simple and doesn’t pack on the calories to an otherwise healthy dish!
