When thousand island and ranch dressing have lost their appeal, you might want to drop by your favorite grocery to see what other options are available. You could do that, or you could take things into your own hands with some homemade dressing. By creating your own homemade salad dressing, you’re making sure that you know what’s been put into it. No secret sugar or sodium, no unwanted fats or salt. With the assistance of Prevention.com, all you get is tasty salad dressing that goes well with a bowl of crisp greens.
In a quart mason jar, mix in the olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, and oregano. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. You can toss in grated Parmesan cheese if you like. Close the jar then shake well to combine all the ingredients.
Heat the raspberries and water in a sauce pan over medium heat. Keep this solution covered. After several minutes, use a fork to mash the raspberries and draw out the juices. Allow the mixture to gently bubble until the raspberries have softened completely before adding and stirring in honey. Pour the mixture in a container and place it in the refrigerator until it has cooled completely. Strain the mixture into a bowl to separate the pulp and the syrup. Combine the syrup with the remaining ingredients in a blender and then blend until smooth and creamy.
Blend all the ingredients together in a blender or food processor. If you prefer a thicker texture, then you can increase the amount of tahini. Pouring in more vinegar or oil will thin it out.
Using a food processor, blend together the cilantro, yogurt, garlic, lime juice, and salt until smooth. Slowly add olive oil through the feed-tube while the motor is still running. Chill for at least 10 minutes for the flavors to mix together better.
Add all the ingredients into a blend and then blend to your desired consistency.
In a glass jar, place in all the ingredients. Seal the jar tightly before shaking well until all the ingredients have combined.
Making your own salad dressing is easy — easier than having to deal with salad dressing chock-full of unhealthy ingredients.
