Katie: After realizing how many artificial ingredients and how much sugar (8 grams per serving!) were in the low-fat salad dressing I’d been using, I decided to make my own dressing. I used this recipe from Cooking Light, which was super quick to make. I ended up with a delicious and healthier dressing that tastes great, especially with spinach. Since it was so easy to make, I think I’ll definitely experiment with other homemade dressing in the future!
Strawberry Salad Dressing (from Cooking Light)
- 2 cups whole strawberries
- 1/3 cup champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Blend everything in a blender or food processor. It’s that simple!
