Do you know what the key is to making a great salad? I used to think it was all about the ingredients, and this is somewhat true, but the secret to the best salads I’ve ever tasted has always been in the salad dressing. In fact, a bad salad dressing will ruin even the best salad you make.
Homemade salad dressings may sound too complicated, but we can assure you that making your own salad dressing will be well worth your time. I love to make dressing on Sunday night and then enjoy it all week when I have less time to make things for lunch and dinner.
