How many ingredients are on the label of your store-bought salad dressing? Seriously, check. I’ll wait.
I’m willing to bet it’s more than three. One of them may even be sugar or some variety of it.
At this point you may be thinking, “but, I use ‘lite’ dressing, so it’s healthier than what you’re talking about.” Sorry to break it to you, but ‘lite’ dressing is even worse for you because it typically contains added sugar to make up for the flavor lost from removing the fat. Trust me, I wasn’t happy when I found out either.
In no way am I trying to shame your choice of salad dressing. I get it. There’s not enough time in the day to make salad dressing from scratch along with all the other things you need to accomplish.
But, what if I told you this dressing only contains three ingredients and takes two minutes to make? You don’t even need fancy equipment – just a whisk.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not – I would NEVER tease you about this.
Okay, you got me. There’s a blender in the photo above. I assure you, it’s only for the image – a pouring photo just isn’t the same with a whisk. You can certainly use a blender to make it if you prefer, but it is completely unnecessary.
The best part about this dressing is that it’s not just reserved for salads. Here’s what else I’ve put it on so far:
- roasted carrots
- sweet potatoes
- Brussels Sprouts
- veggie burgers
- rice bowls
All of which seem a little more indulgent when they are drizzled with this dressing.
It’s even starting to nudge out my current condiment of choice, Sir Kensington’s vegan chipotle mayo. Yes, I put this on salads as well and, no, I’m not ashamed of it. It tastes too good to worry about how strange it looks when I do it.
The only negative about this dressing is that I can’t take credit for it. The credit belongs to Bon Appétit – they used it in this Roasted Sweet Potato recipe and the rest is history.
Also, let me know what else you put it on. I’d love to hear what you come up with.Print
