Different Kinds of Salad Dressings

It’s one of those dishes you can literally throw in a bowl and forget about. Salads are too easy. They are a great way to get creative by blending flavors. I have so many favorite salads! Sweet potato and orange is amazing, but that will have to be a whole other hub.
In the meantime her are a few of my favorite dressings to spice up your healthy recipes. Most of them have come from a trial and error process and some were just perfect the way they were. I will add salad suggestions for each dressing, but it really is up to you. These selected dressings go great over other dishes too, not just salad. I urge you to try these easy salad dressing recipes for yourself!
