Stop consuming store bought salad dressings and make your own. We show you some simple recipes that you can simply put in a mason jar and shake away. Cheap, easy and minimal wastage.
Who is guilty of having a row of half-finished salad dressing bottles in the fridge?
Hands up. We’ve all been there before.
We know it seems easy to purchase a new bottle every time you feel like a different salad dressing flavour, but we dread seeing the long line of random assortment of sauces on the side door every time we open the fridge.
We are now sending help. Let us inspire you to shake up your own salad dressing repertoire! You can now ditch out the salad dressing bottles, skip past them in the supermarket aisle and make your own salad dressings at home.
No more wastage.
To make it even easier, we have a lip-smacking collection of salad dressings you can shake and pour from a mason jar.
How simple is that!
The other upside to making your salad dressing is that they definitely taste better than pre-packaged bottles. Part of this is because you know exactly what you’re putting into your dressing recipe to help reduce preservatives and thickeners.
Plus you can tweak them to your liking. If you like more tang, dial up the acidity. If you prefer a sweet touch, add your preferred natural sweetener. We like a bit of spice so we can add as much chilli as like but can easily tone it down for our guests.
Forever gone are the days that you are stuck with the same bottle of salad dressing when catering for family and friends. There are endless delicious combinations you can create with your own homemade salad dressings. Just have fun with it!
Many of our salad dressing recipes use common pantry staples. They are super easy to make.
Basically, add ingredients in a mason jar and shake like crazy.
Best of all, you can make as much or as little as you need. There is no food wastage. So you may want to whip up a double batch for tomorrow or meal prep for the week. You can control the quantity and be sure you make what you need.
