4 Simple Homemade Dressings

Try not to fall into the trap of purchasing commercial salad dressings and vinaigrettes, unless you read the ingredients on the back because most are full of sugars/sweetners/extra fats and can turn a healthy meal into an unhealthy meal. The following salad dressings are all vegan and healthy versions of my old favourite dressings that are packed full of sugar. As always, change the qantities of ingredients to suit your taste-this is just the ratios I use. These are all made to serve one, but can be doubled/tripled depending on the size of your salad or how many people you are serving!

1. Lemon-Pepper Herb

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbl apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tbl olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cracked pepper
  • 2 tbl of diced fresh parsley
  • 2 tbl of diced fresh coriander
  • 2 tbl of diced fresh chives

Healthy Creamy ‘Pasta’ Dressing

  • 2 tbl tahini
  • 1 tbl olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 tbl apple cider vinegar

Citrus Vinaigrette

  • 1 tsp grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 orange, juiced
  • 1 tbl olive oil

Tangy Honey Mustard 
(This can be made vegan by substituting the honey for rice malt syrup)

  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbl lemon juice
  • 1 tsp seeded mustard
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tbl tahini
  • 1 tbl olive oil
  • pinch of salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

whisk all ingredients for around 30seconds and massage into meals before eating- it tastes a lot better!
