Homemade Salad Dresings

 During the summer months, we are always out by the pool or entertaining with friends and family. When the weather’s warm, everyone enjoys a refreshing salad with fresh vegetables, crisp lettuce, and dressed with a delicious dressing. Tangy salad dressings during the summer are my favorite and I feel they always make a refreshing and unforgetable salad. I like to experiment with different ingredients until I get just the right flavor I’m looking for. I’ll also try to incorporate fresh herb from the garden too. Making your own dressing with ingredients you have on hand is also easy on your food budget.

Honey Mustard Lime Vinaigrette


1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 Tablespoons water

1/4 cup pure wildflower honey (any honey will work, I like this particular one because it’s darker, and thicker)

Juice of 1 lime

1 teaspoon orange juice

2 garlic cloves, pressed

1/2 teaspoon dill

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper


  Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk. I recycle my leftover jelly or jam jars and mix alll the ingredients directly in the jar. Place all ingredients in the jar, place lid on tight and shake.

  3. I'm not sure if I mentioned this previously on your blog or somewhere else. Rarely, do I buy salad dressings, organic or not. It's usually starts with a basic lemon juice, vinegar and oil mix. The creamy dressings of cheese and yogurt, I place in the food processor. It's so easy to make and the process of creating an unique salad dressing is fun.
