Unique Salad CreationsDelicious, simple, easy to prepare homemade dressings will help keep you on track for eating more salads this year.

If your goal is to eat more salads this year then learn to simplify the process.

Keep a well-stocked pantry and refrigerator to make meal prep a breeze. When purchasing your produce, look for fresh quality and seasonal items. These salads are made to be mix and matched so you can use the ingredients that you have available.

One of the things that we love to do is spice up our salads with our own homemade dressings. Glen loves the vinegar and oil and I love a Thousand Island Dressing.

Here are the recipes that we use.

Fresh Homemade Vinegar and Oil Dressing

Whiskware by Blender Bottle

There are several ways to mix the vinegar and oil.

You can recycle a jar or a honey bottle and shake well.

For dinner parties, we like something that is easy to pass around the table and classy. We have found that the Whiskware by BlenderBottle works the best.

  1. The blender ball mixes the ingredients well and can be stored in the bottle with the ingredients to be used again.
  2. Looks great on the dinner table and is easy to pass around.
