These 3-Ingredient Salad Dressings Will Make You Ditch The Bottled Stuff


Salad fiends, you probably already know that the key to a kickass salad is all in the dressing. While you may have your favorite bottled dressing ready to go in the fridge, we highly suggest you ditch it for a homemade option. These three-ingredient (excluding water) salad dressings are easy to make and tastier than the pre-made stuff — trust us.

1. Goat Cheese + Avocado + Red Pepper Flakes + Water

Want something cheesy and creamy? Combine spreadable goat cheese, mashed avocado, red pepper flakes and a splash of water to make a salty and slightly spicy salad dressing. Add water as needed until you get the consistency you want.

2. Yogurt + Curry Powder + Lemon Juice

If you’ve got some plain yogurt in the fridge, break it out to make another creamy salad dressing with a kick. Yogurt, curry powder and lemon juice make the ultimate Indian-spiced dressing that you can put on nearly anything.

3. Olive Oil + Lime Juice + Raspberries

Want something a little fruity? Go for a raspberry dressing by mashing raspberries, then whisking them with olive oil and lime juice. A little tropical, a little sweet, a lot of flavor.

4. Dijon Mustard + Balsamic Vinegar + Olive Oil

A Dijon dressing is elegant and classic, plus it packs a lot of flavor. Pair it with acidic balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and you’ll have a potential new favorite dressing in no time.

5. Olive Oil + Salt + Apple Cider Vinegar

If you want to go for a classic, this three-ingredient mix will do the trick. The apple cider vinegar gives the dressing a little tangy kick to make things interesting while the salt brings it back down to comfort-level.
