Sweet Red Onion Dressing

Making your own salad dressing at home isn’t as difficult as you might think! Homemade not only ups your salad game but gives you control over what goes into your dressing, meaning you can skip all the unnecessary additives and preservatives often found in store-bought options. It’s also a healthier dressing! By using fresh, wholesome ingredients, you can create a dressing that's not only tasty but also good for you.

Another bonus is the endless customization possibilities. Want a creamy ranch with a hint of garlic? Or maybe a tangy vinaigrette with a kick of chili flakes? When you DIY your dressing, the flavor combinations are limited only by your imagination. Plus, making your own dressing can save you some cash in the long run - no need to keep buying pricey bottles from the store. There's also a satisfaction that comes from creating something delicious from scratch.
