I love this salad dressing when I am wanting to get away from the store-bought “sweet” ones. I do love Caesar dressing, but sometimes it actually tastes too sweet (yes, they add sugar to it). I found a recipe I wanted to share with you that is super easy to make, extremely healthy, and tastes absolutely marvelous! It is also gluten free, sugar free, and low carb for those who may want to know. Just don’t be afraid of the olive oil; healthy fats are GOOD for our bodies!
Healthy Salad Dressing Recipe
Use all organic ingredients:
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. organic oregano
- 1/2 tsp. organic cumin
- 1/2 tsp. organic garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. organic cayenne
- 1 Tbsp. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
Mix all ingredients together and store in a cruet in the pantry or cupboard.
This makes a lot of dressing and I am not able to use it fast enough. Depending on your usage and family size, I might recommend halving the recipe or even quartering it.
I actually make this the lazy way (or maybe it’s the hard way, depending on how you look at it). I make this in an individual amount right as I make my salad. I don’t measure any of the ingredients but just guess and add them to a small bowl, stir, and pour over my salad. I use about 1 T. of olive oil, I would guess, and then just splashes of the liquids, and a few shakes of the spices. It works for me, although some people might not want to make their salad dressing each time they make a salad.
In addition to salads, this is also great on wraps, steamed vegetables, or as a dip. Let me know what you think of it after you try it!
