If you are a regular visitor to this blog (which you ought to be, by the way), then by now you should know that I’m not a fan of store-bought food. The can may say “healthy” but the product label tells an entirely different story so to save myself and my family from chemical additives with names I can barely pronounce, I usually go the homemade route and salad dressings are no exceptions.

I love salads but finding healthy salad dressings can be a challenge. These healthy clean eating salad dressing recipes are just what I need to go with my favorite salads!

We all know that vegetables and fruits play a vital role in our body; eating a diet rich in these will protect us from a number of chronic diseases. When it comes to meals for the family, I always try to keep it clean and that means incorporating more fresh produce, focusing more on the nutrients and, of course, cutting out processed foods.

Up until recently, my salad dressing game has been a little weak- I have been an olive oil/lemon juice kinda girl for too long. Fortunately, these little gems have changed all that – clean eating, easy to make and extremely delicious. Happy reading!
