Awesome Dressing Recipes For Amazing Green Salad

Most greens have a neutral taste, so the dressing you use for your salad plus other ingredients like herbs and spice you add will greatly impact the taste of the whole dish. The good news is that you can customize the taste according to your mood – whether you like something light and creamy or something heavy and bursting with flavor.

Here are 3 salad dressing recipes that will bring your greens and veggies to life:

Honey Raspberry Vinaigrette

What you need:

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine raspberries and white sugar in a bowl and leave for 10 to 15 minutes until the mixture is juicy. Mash berries using a fork until liquefied (or pulse in a blender for 30 seconds if you prefer dressing to be smoother). Pour into a glass jar with a lid then add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, and salt to the jar. Cover and shake until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Cheesy Peppercorn Dressing

What you need:

  • 2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese or more, if desired
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

In a bowl, mix together yogurt, parmesan cheese, onion, parsley mayonnaise, ground black pepper, and salt. Slowly add and stir in milk until desired thinness is achieved. Add more cheese or salt to adjust the taste. Cover and cool for at least an hour before applying.

Sweet Bacon Dressing

What you need:

  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Whisk together sugar, corn starch, and salt in a medium bowl. Slowly stir in vinegar and water, whisking constantly. Place crumbled bacon in a skillet over medium heat then pour sugar mixture over bacon. Cook and stir constantly until the mixture becomes firm. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
