Notes

  • Select a good quality olive oil for making salad dressings of any kind – this is so important since olive oil is such a huge component to salad dressings.
  • Mix up the fresh fruit – Use strawberries in place of the raspberries in the raspberry dressing to make a strawberry vinaigrette. Omit the orange juice in the orange dressing and add in fresh lime juice (1/4 cup) plus some fresh cilantro (1/2 cup) to make a creamy cilantro lime dressing.
  • All of these dressings can be made ahead and stored for 4-5 days in the fridge. How great is that!
  • Use the orange, honey mustard, or Balsamic vinaigrette’s as marinades for chicken or fish as well!
