A good dressing is the secret to making an excellent salad. It’s so simple to make a dressing from scratch; you can get creative with the ingredients as much as you want. A freshly made dressing can be stored for future servings. Once you get the hang of it you will never buy the ready-made ones.

What you will love about this dressing:

  • You can make a whole bottle of it and keep it for the next few salads and one-pot meals. Just keep it in the fridge.
  • A good dressing is like the bonding element that puts disjointed pieces together; such as the left-overs you have from the past 2 days. Throw them together with some brown rice, quinoa or pasta, splash some of that dressing on and voila!
