3 Simple + Healthy DIY Dressings that Wow

3 Simple + Healthy DIY Dressings that Wow

Most bottled dressings are filled with less-than-stellar ingredients like added sugars, ingredients you can't pronounce and refined, junky oils. But DIY-ing your own dressing does not have to be difficult, and we've rounded up three of our absolute favorite simple dressing recipes. 

 

Lemon Tahini Dressing

—via Oh She Glows

 

We love Angela's Protein Power Goddess bowl recipe, but the real start of the show is the Lemon Tahini dressing. It has only six ingredients but tastes like something you'd get at your favorite restaurant and is packed with healthy, anti-inflammatory fats.

The All-Purpose Vinaigrette

—via a Cup of Jo

 

This is the dressing you'll always have ingredients on hand for, and can be treated more like a formula. Substitute a flavorful vinegar for the lemon juice and you'll still love the results.

Easy Green Goddess Dressing

—via Minimalist Baker

 

Slightly more adventurous than the other two, this Green Goddess dressing does require some shopping in advance for the bevy of fresh herbs. But it is worth it! Also makes a great dip for crudité.

5 Easy + Elegant Summer Salads

Summer is one of the easiest times to fill your plate with delicious, in-season fruits and vegetables—and salads are a great way to do just that. Whether you're hosting, offered to bring a side, or just grilling out in your own backyard, try one of these delicious and simple salads that look gorgeous too. 

 

1. The unofficial salad of summer is this Summer Peach Spinach Salad with Avocado, Toasted Almonds + Goat Cheese from Ambitious Kitchen. 

 

2. If you want to go lettuce-less, try this chopped Greek salad with a simple dressing by Love & Lemons.

 

3. This classic Boston Lettuce Salad with Shaved Parmesan is ingredient minimalist but features the perfect dressing by Martha Stewart.

 

4. This Spinach Salad by Well Plated salad features another summer classic: strawberries. It stays out of boring territory by adding crunch (nuts), cheese, and Balsamic Poppy Seed dressing.

 

5. If you're looking for an entrée salad, try this Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad with Chipotle Cashew Dressing from goop. Sub tofu or tempeh for a vegetarian option.
