Hello #LoyalRoyals

What is it that takes a salad from good to great? For me, it’s got to be a) the freshness of ingredients (and you don’t need many!) and b) a dreamy salad dressing that brings everything together with a little zing.

Here are four of our favourite salad dressings – all the potential to take your salad from side lines to serious main dish contender!

And if it’s more salad recipes you are after, head this way.

The Essential Summer Salad Dressing

This is the simplest of salad dressings but it is totally delicious. Serve it over a crisp green salad or take it to work and drizzle it over a sandwich. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll want a jar living permanently in your fridge. Here’s the recipe.

Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing. Just love that name! We’re inspired by the Californian classic but, to make this dressing slightly lighter and plant-based, we’ve replaced mayo with our classic Hummus and suggested Basil & Lemon Pesto instead. Keep the anchovies if you love them, or use capers to keep things vegan. This way for the recipe.

Harissa & Hummus Dressing

They say dressing maketh the salad. Or something to that effect 😉

Your salads and roasted veggie dishes will thank you for splashing this creamy dressing all over them. We poured ours over roasted butternut, beetroot and feta, then loaded on a handful of rocket leaves for crunch and Vitamin K. Get the recipe here.

Basil & Lemon Pesto Vinaigrette

By using a jar of pesto as the foundation of this dressing, things come together quickly, so it’s become a thing to make up a batch of this Basil & Lemon Pesto Vinaigrette over weekends. Drizzle this lemony dressing over an open sarmie of ripe tomatoes on rye, or straight onto an avo and eat with a spoon. Of course, it’s good for any improvised salad, but better still is to make up a batch of couscous salad (roasted veggies + rocket) and dress up with Basil & Lemon Pesto vinaigrette. Here’s the recipe.
