Do you know how to make your own salad dressing? In the summer, we eat a lot of salads.  There’s an endless bounty of fresh vegetables from our garden and our neighbors are always stopping by with extra vegetables from their gardens.  What I put in my garden salads really depends on what I have a lot of in the garden. There is always a base of lettuce, arugula, spinach or dandelion greens depending on the time of year. I also add in carrots, cucumbers, peppers, onions, and tomatoes when I have them. As a splurge, I sometimes add bacon, chunks of cheese, nuts, or dried fruits.  The final addition to my salad is usually a salad dressing of some type.

While the grocery store has a great selection of salad dressing, sometimes they aren’t the best choice.  Store bought salad dressings are often full of fat, sodium, and artificial ingredients. It’s possible to make your own salad dressing without any of that added. This raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing is one of my favorite healthy salad dressing recipes.

I chose the Heinz Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar for my salad dressing because I wanted to enjoy the properties of unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Unfiltered apple cider vinegar still contains the “mother” of the vinegar – a compound created naturally during vinegar’s fermentation process. The mother of vinegar helps to improve your immune system and helps you stay healthy. It will lose many of its health properties when it is cooked so I like to use it in recipes that I am not heating like this salad dressing.  For more Heinz Vinegar ideas, follow them on Pinterest and try a few more of their recipes. If you have traditional Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar, try my homemade barbecue sauce recipe.

Here are a few more homemade salad dressings you can try. What types of salad dressing do you like?
