If you've never made your own salad dressing or vinaigrette before, you'll love how easy it is AND how much better it tastes! For us low-carbers, one of the most important differences though is the lack of sugar. The other day I found a vinaigrette that contained 14 grams of carbohydrates for two tablespoons, all of which were sugars! In fact the first ingredient was sugar, followed by water!

Although homemade versions don't last so long, once you start making  your own you won't look back!

Give it a taste test. If it is perfect, great! If not, consider one or more of these optional extras:

  • Prefer it sweeter? Add in a little sugar free honey! Read my recipe for low carb honey mustard sauce for options.
  • Not a strong enough flavor? Add some garlic powder, garlic paste, or minced garlic.
  • Want the dressing to have more body? Add in a couple of tablespoons of finely grated Parmesan

Any of these options can be a game changer! Just shake it up again and you're good to go.

Store the dressing in the fridge for up to two weeks. Before using, bring it to room temperature for a few minutes then give it a good shake. It is normal for the ingredients to separate!
