You’ll want to check the website again on Friday because I have a fantastic Southwest Steak Salad that pairs perfectly with the Chipotle Vinaigrette.

I recommend shaking together a jar of this dressing now, so you’ll have it ready to go when you make the salad.

If you’ve been hanging out with me here for very long, you already know just how much I love making my own salad dressings. Just about any salad can be wonderfully dressed up with a great dressing.

I love having salads made-ahead in the fridge for easy lunches and having a variety of dressings waiting in the fridge keeps it interesting.

Salad Dressing Recipes

Homemade Ranch Dressing is a reader favorite and it’s been one of the most popular recipes on the website for years now. This Balsamic Vinaigrette comes in a close second to the ranch dressing.

I’ve published over 30 salad dressing recipes and a few of my personal favorites are Strawberry Vinaigrette, Creamy Poppyseed Dressing, and the classic Italian Salad Dressing.

This Blueberry Vinaigrette caught my eye recently and I think it would be delicious on this Blueberry Apple Walnut Salad.

    I find home made dressing are especially great simply because you can use more of a favorite ingredient if you so desire GREAT

    What could I use instead of the honey. My son has turned vegan and I would like to make it for one of our weekly dinners.

    • Mary Younkin says

      You should be able to use maple or agave syrup for this recipe as well. It will change the flavor slightly, but it should still taste great, Lorraine.

    I loooove this dressing. Sweet, spicy, tangy, and so easy to make. 6 ingredients and blends together perfectly with a spin of the immersion blender. Just used it on our taco salads and I’m not sure I’ve ever been that excited about a salad. YUM!!! Thanks for sharing.5 stars

    Thank you for the delish dressing recipe, we loved it on our carnitas salads.
    Wondering what can I add to make it creamy and how much without losing the awesome flavor.
    Thank you so much!❤️

      I haven’t tried that myself, Chris, but I’d start with a bit of mayonnaise and whisk it as smooth as possible. You may need to tweak the other ingredients a bit to make sure you don’t lose flavor. Enjoy!
