Our recipes section has been ignored for a while, and I’m truly sorry for that. As we’re gong to revive it, I thought what better way to start than to round up some amazing healthy salad dressing recipes? They are incredibly important as adding flavor to a salad will make eating greens and raw veggies much more exciting.

Most of us aren’t getting enough raw, whole foods in our diets anyway, so we can use all the help we can get. Obviously, using a store-bought salad dressing is not a smart choice if you’re trying to eat healthily.

While you can find healthy options at the grocery store, those are also more expensive. If you’re trying to improve your health through a varied, but budget friendly diet you should definitely check out these healthy salad dressing recipes. They don’t just taste great, you can whip them up in no time!
