Creamy Everyday Salad Dressing

5 Minutes

super easy


I know a lot of people today are still hesitant about salad dressings but making them at home is an absolute game changer in terms of calories, sugar content and extra additives like emulsifiers and preservatives. If you’re enjoying a salad with a variety of vegetables, greens, beans, legumes and maybe a small serving of animal or soy protein, this satisfying dressing can 100% play a part in your health, weight loss or weight management journey. 

Cost Effectiveness

As I’m sure most of you here know, I believe in the power of predominantly whole food meals made at home and with love. Eating this way feels best in my body and has helped so many women find peace with food without dieting or heavy restriction. I understand that this requires some degree of time, effort and money. Thankfully, most of my recipes are fairly easy and don’t require an insane amount of ingredients. They are also relatively inexpensive. For example, below is the cost breakdown for this recipe based on current prices in Austin, Texas. My intention in sharing this is to show how much more cost effective it is to make healthy foods at home. As always, please reach out with any questions. I am always here to help! 


Why You’ll Love It 

Extra virgin olive oil is an important monounsaturated fat, which can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood. Lowering these LDL levels can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke, so they’re beneficial for people with high blood pressure 

Monounsaturated fats also provide necessary nutrients to help develop and maintain your body’s cells

Extra virgin olive oil is rich in antioxidants, like Vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects the body against diseases like cancer, diabetes and other neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s

Fat actually helps the body absorb nutrients; many vegetables (especially those rich in Vitamins A, D, E and K) are more fully absorbed with fat, so dressing your salad with extra virgin olive oil or an olive oil based dressing like this one could actually help your body receive more valuable nutrients 

Fat keeps you fuller for longer, which can help us feel satiated and thus help us to not overeat or excessively snack between meals
