3 Delicious & Healthy Salad Dressings

If you've had a chance to check out my free salad guide, you'll know that Walker and I eat salads every day, often twice daily. We do this to stay energized
Aug 2, 2016 | Joy McCarthy

If you've had a chance to check out my free salad guide, you'll know that Walker and I eat salads every day, often twice daily. We do this to stay energized, prevent disease, keep our digestive systems joyous, and because they taste so darn delicious!

This means I'm always on the hunt for new salad dressing recipes because I do not buy bottled salad dressing. I don't think a bottle of store-bought salad dressing has been in my fridge in the last 10 years! Let me tell you why:

Store-bought bottled salad dressing is usually full of ingredients I do not eat, such as:

  • Refined sugar
  • Excess sodium
  • Artificial preservatives 
  • MSG (also known as yeast extract)
  • GMO ingredients such as canola oil

See what I mean? Not only are store-bought salad dressings full of ingredients you probably don't want to eat, but buying bottled dressings can be costly. Often, 20-30% of the cost is the packaging alone! 

Cost and additives aside, if you want to step up your salad game, then you've come to the right place because I have three delicious and healthy salad dressings. These dressings are so yummy that it will help you eat more salads – it's a win-win situation!

All three salad dressings feature my favourite Canadian superfood: HEMP!

I've used Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts and hemp oil in these recipes, which are both incredibly nutrient-dense, versatile and delicious. If you've tried my Sweet Pea Hemp Dip with Mint, Vanilla Chai Hemp Truffles or these Raspberry Hemp Chocolate Squares, then you're on the hemp train with me. If not, then hop on this train; I've been waiting for you :)

I recommend that you always use the freshest, highest-quality ingredients and choose organic whenever possible.
