How to Make Homemade Salad Dressing

By: Leanne Ely

Today, in the video above, I teach you how to make homemade salad dressing! If there’s one thing that irritates me, it’s salad dressing from the store!  Salad dressing at the store is overpriced, in tiny little containers and typically made with poor-quality oils. And I’m sorry, for a dressing to be good, you need to be using a really excellent oil.

Why should you use good oil in your salad dressing? Because you want to be eating high-quality fats. A great oil to use is extra virgin olive oil. Go out there. Look at the salad dressing department or even the gourmet section of your grocery store and see exactly what kind of oil is in there.  Oftentimes, you’ll see it has olive oil in it but it will just say olive oil, it won’t say extra virgin olive oil. We need 100% virgin olive oil.

Making your own dressing not only is fast and easy but it is delicious, much, much better for you, and much better for your wallet.

Watch the video above to see how to make my favorite homemade dressing.

So enjoy and make your own dressing for heaven’s sake.  You’ve gone to all that trouble to make a gorgeous salad.  Put your own dressing on it!
