4 Clean Eating Salad Dressing Recipes

After my rant about sugar the other day and mentioning my journey into the homemade salad dressing realm, a commenter asked if I knew of a ranch dressing recipe. I’m not much of a ranch person myself, so I haven’t tried out this particular recipe, but I found a clean eating recipe from The Gracious Pantry.

Check it out below followed by my favorites Greek, Balsamic, and Italian. Feel free to share your favorites in the comments below, or if you have a dressing you’d like the recipe for, let me know what it is and I’ll try to figure it out!

Tip: Only make what you need that day or maybe for the next day. Fresh dressing doesn’t stay that great because of the lack of preservatives. Also, experiment with your seasonings and vinegars to meet your own personal taste!

  2. Thank you! I’m going to mix up the Greek one first, and see if it is the flavor I’m looking for a tortellini salad. If not, will mix up the Italian! It’s gonna be fun experimenting! ๐Ÿ™‚
