Honey Ginger Orange Salad Dressing

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been all about making my own salad dressings lately. The taste better, they’re better for you, they’re cheaper, and it’s fun! I keep them in my empty wine bottles. A couple days ago, I made an honey ginger orange dressing that was to die for! Here is the recipe!

-*1 cup extra virgin olive oil, *1/3 cup balsamic vinegar, *1/2 tablespoon dried chives, *juice of 1/2 orange squeeze, *1/3 cup honey, *1/2 teaspoon ground ginger.

Shake well!

I used this dressing with a salad made up of cucumber, romaine, roma tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and dried cranberries.

    A few months ago I took the time to look up the ingredients in typical Wishbone or Kraft dressings and I was disgusted. It’s all chemicals and not something I want in my body! I’ve been having some fun making dressings lately too. The best one yet is this one I found. I mix it with Greek yogurt and it comes out amazing! Even really good on chicken and then grilled!

    1/3 cup dry buttermilk
    2 Tbsp. dried parsley
    1 1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
    2 tsp. garlic powder
    2 tsp. onion powder
    2 tsp. dried onion flakes
    1 tsp. ground black pepper
    1 tsp. dried chives
    1 tsp. salt

    DIRECTIONS:

    Whisk all ingredients together until blended. If you want a more finely-ground seasoning mix, you can pulse the mixture in a food processor until it reaches your desired consistency.

    Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

    *3 Tablespoons of this mix = 1 packet of the store-bought seasoning mix

    **To Make Ranch Dressing: Combine 1 Tbsp. seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup milk, and whisk to combine. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for the mayo.

    I love making my own dressing. It’s the best. It’s always lighter and tastes way better and when you run out, you can just make some more!
