Have you ever looked at the ingredients in most salad dressings? You wouldn’t believe what kind of stuff they sneak in there! Interestingly enough, I feel like the ingredient list for salad dressing often gets over looked. You would think think they’re quite simple, and while some are, most are not. And for a high-quality clean salad dressing, the price can start to add up quickly. Two of my favorite store bought dressings are Bragg’s Olive Oil + Apple Cider Vinegar and Primal Kitchen Foods Ranch (actually I love all their dressings).
I originally created this dressing for a 3-pepper pasta salad but have also used it for traditional salad as well. I love the combo between the maple syrup + balsamic… it’s sweet and tangy all in one bite!
Checkout the YouTube video here! PS—I also share my favorite tips for removing labels when reusing jars!
In a jar with a lid, combine together:
-1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1/3 cup of Balsamic Vinegar
-1/8 cup of Italian Seasoning
-1 TBSP of Maple Syrup
-Pinch of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Shake until well blended. Store on the refrigerator + shake between each use!
For the 3-pepper pasta salad I cooked 2 boxes of noodles, added 1 chopped red, yellow and orange bell pepper and fresh chopped cherry tomatoes. Refrigerated for 2-3 hours and then added 2x the dressing recipe above (this made a HUGE portion).
As usual, reach out to me with questions and tag me when you make your dressing. I love seeing y’all’s photos! ?
