Salad Dressing Recipes includes French Dressing, Blue Cheese with Port Wine and a restaurant style old fashioned creamy homemade salad dressing for Italian Salad.
These quick and easy recipes enhance the flavor and palatability of your healthy salads. Make them often to serve everyday.
Customized them to what your family likes by changing the ingredient quantities or making substitutions.
For example, if you prefer balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar over the apple cider vinegar listed in the recipe, then make the substitution.
This is the great asset of a homemade salad dressing, made from scratch. You can make it your way if you have a great basic recipe.
There are Five Basic Types of salad dressings:
are dozens of varieties of these five types of Salad Dressing Recipes on the grocery shelves.
Make healthier dressings if you prefer, by adjusting the Salad Dressing Recipes ingredients ratio. For example, should you need to cut calories, lower the sugar and oil additions. Commercial salad dressings must contain not less than 30 per cent fat.*
Need to cut salt intake, eliminate it! Salt is overrated for enhancing the flavor of foods, in my opinion. In fact, I think it masks the delicious true flavor of many vegetables, including greens.
Homemade can be economical. If you have discarded half of bottle of dressing at home, because it became too old before you could use it up, you can eliminate that. Divide a recipe in half to make sure you don't overstock.
