20 Easy To Make Salad Dressings

It is officially summer! That means the time to eat salad as often as possible is here! With so many fresh ingredients readily available at the grocer, farmers market or maybe even growing in your own garden, salad has been so appealing. Next, comes easy to make salad dressings to compliment your delicious salad. 

My family has salad with dinner often in the warm months. We love to try new salad dressing recipes and toppings. But, I don’t love committing to buying a bottle of something we may not love. Whenever possible I like to make dressing at home so I know what is in it, and if we will like it.

If you are picking the ingredients and enjoying your salads from farm to table, or showing your support to local growers, one thing remains the same, every salad needs a good dressing to spice things up and add variety!
