I love salad, but I get bored with the same old salad dressings that come straight from a bottle. I like to make my own dressing and add fresh-from-the-garden ingredients. The flavor just can’t be beat. Below are two super simple recipes to get you started with your own salad experiments.

Making your own salad dressing is quick, easy and cost-effective! It is also a great way to experiment with herbs. You can easily substitute different herbs in the recipes below and get completely different results. For example, in the Blueberry Vinaigrette, try using salad burnet, chives or lemon verbena in place of the lemon balm. In the Rosemary Vinaigrette, you can substitute oregano, sage or summer savory for the rosemary. They all work! Have fun experimenting!
