Do you buy salad dressings from the store? 

Once I learned how to make my own dressing about seven years ago (you’re looking at a former Food Network Channel JUNKIE) I never bought another store-bought salad dressing again. Mine are better, cheaper, and definitely healthier. Just read the labels of some of the dressings out there and you’ll start to see some of the nonsense they put in those jars.

One of CrossFit HQ’s nutrition contributors, Hilary Achauer, has the same sentiment I do when it comes to buying salad dressings in the store.

She offers three of her personal recipes here.

And if three isn’t enough, here’s the one I make that everyone always gushes over…

Stephanie’s Homemade Orange Salad Dressing
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
Zest of 1 Orange
1-2 Tablespoons Raw Honey (more for sweeter, less for more tart)
Salt and Pepper to Taste

(Note — This dressing is not thick. It’s light and a little bit goes a long way. And it’s so yummy that all you need are delicious greens. My favorite is this one 🙂 )

Cheers to being the best salad dresser of all your friends!

xoxo,

Stephanie
