Easy Salad Dressing Recipes

Tired of the same old salads? Try some new combos with your favorite vegetables.

Simple Vinaigrette

3/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and blend until well combined.

Avocado Deliciousness

1 small avocado smashed with a fork

2 tbsp lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

splash of red wine vinegar

Peel and smash the avocado using a fork in a small bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix and enjoy. This makes a yummy dip or good base for a chunky salad.

Chickpea Smash

1 can of chickpeas, drained

1/4 cup mayonnaise (sub greek yogurt or sour cream)

salt and pepper to taste

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp mustard

2 tbsp pickle relish (sub capers, chopped dill pickle or another preserve)

use about 1 tbs pickle juice too

1/4 cup green onion, finely chopped

Using the bottom of a cup or potato masher, mash the chickpeas until there's a chunky paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Eat this on bread or add vegetables for a chunky salad. I like to add chopped kale, cucumber, apple, red pepper and jicama.

Green Goodness

1/2 cup parsley

1/4 cup mint leaves

1 small avocado

1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until well combined. If the mixture is too thick, add a bit of water. Store in the fridge and add to salads, over grilled meat or just drink it (kidding but it is really good).

**This sauce is a garlic lover's delight and I always have a bottle in my fridge. It's vegan, lasts a good while in your fridge and is delicious.
