Salad dressings play a crucial role in elevating the flavors of your favorite greens and veggies, turning a simple salad into a culinary masterpiece.

Michelle’s Homemade Olive Oil Salad Dressing Recipe (and marinade) 

  • Ingredients, add to mason jar or glass tupperware:  
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil, I love @kosterina and @gundrymd
  • 1 freshly squeezed lemon
  • ½ tsp high-quality sea salt such as @amagansettseasalt
  • 1 teaspoon local organic honey  (impactful health benefits) 

Shake like crazy, each time you use it! !

Good for 7 days or longer in the fridge. When I use it as a marinade for chicken or shrimp or veggies, I let it sit for an hour or so, but even 15 minutes imparts a great flavor! 

Customizing Your Dressing

One of the best aspects of making homemade salad dressings is the freedom to customize them according to your preferences. Here are some creative ideas for giving your olive oil dressing a personal touch:

  • Herb-Infused: Add fresh herbs like basil, oregano, or cilantro to your dressing for a burst of fresh flavors. Simply chop the herbs finely and mix them into your dressing.
  • Citrus Zest: Enhance your dressing with the zest of citrus fruits like lemon, lime, or orange. The zest adds a zesty and refreshing dimension to your dressing.

Creating a healthy olive oil salad dressing at home is not only simple but also incredibly rewarding and cost effective. By using high-quality extra virgin olive oil and natural ingredients, you can enjoy the nutritional benefits of this Mediterranean gem while enhancing the flavors of your salads. With the flexibility to customize your dressing to suit your taste, the possibilities are endless. Say goodbye to store-bought dressings loaded with preservatives and artificial ingredients, and say hello to your very own, healthy homemade olive oil salad dressing.
