Dress Up Your Salad

Without a delicious dressing, why bother eating salad at all? We’re (mostly) kidding, but we are pretty serious about our oils and vinaigrettes.

With homemade dressing, you’re in charge of every ingredient. And, with a few good recipes at the ready, you can easily keep your salad rotation fresh. Here are some of our favorites:

To fully mix your dressing, put it in an airtight glass jar with a lid (like a mason jar) and give it a good shake. What could be simpler? Or more delicious?

    How long can you keep these dressings in the fridge and have them still be usable?

    1. Bristol Farms says:

      Hi Deborah, vinaigrette dressings can last for up to two weeks, while dairy based dressings can last for up to a week when stored in airtight containers in the fridge.

    Thanks!! I desperately need a light, easy dressing! Honey Dijon will be just right, and I have all those items!❤️

    I haven’t tried making these dressings yet. It would be nice to know how much each dressing makes, if any of these dressings could be used as a marinade or for anything other than salads and how long you can keep them in the fridge.

    1. Bristol Farms says:

      Hi Tracie, most dressings can double as marinades, just adjust seasonings as needed. Vinaigrette dressings can last for up to two weeks, while dairy based dressings can last for up to a week in airtight containers in the fridge! Thanks for the read!
