Salad Dressing Recipes That Make Everything Better

The Clever Carrot

Many of us have succumbed to the convenience of bottled salad dressing, assuming it's not worth making salad dressing recipes from scratch. Big mistake, guys. Take a look at the ingredients list on a bottle of store-bought dressing, and you might want to reconsider.

It's time to embrace homemade salad dressings and vinaigrettes. Homemade salad dressing recipes are not only easy to make, but so much better for you. It barely takes any effort to make a salad dressing from scratch. Most recipes only require you whisk together a few ingredients or use a blender. And they're fresh, so they taste better (and also make your salads taste better). Depending on the kind of salad dressing, it could last for a week or more. If you make a big batch, you'll have dressing at the ready, making your salads that much quicker and that much better.

You really can't go wrong with making your own dressing, and once you start, you'll never return to the bottled stuff again. Here are 33 easy and rewarding salad dressings that will carry you far this summer.
