Anyone else hate how much room salad dressing bottles take up in your fridge? Or how many weird ingredients are in those bottles? Don’t get me wrong, I keep a couple bottles of my faves in the fridge for a quick salad, but when homemade dressing is so easy to make, it’s hard not to default to that option. You have more control over the ingredients, more flexibility in the flavors, it’s cheaper, and 99% of the time, they taste way better. Unless you screw something up. It happens. 

I’ll be adding to this list as I develop new dressing recipes, so this is a great page to bookmark or pin and refer back to when you’re ready to dress a killer salad. I start the list with salad dressings, and I’ll end the list with salad recipes that involve a salad dressing. You can of course use those dressings on any type of salad you’d like.

Once you have the dressings down, don’t forget about toppings! Try homemade croutons, crispy chickpeas, or seasoned tortilla strips. They’re all so great on salads!
