4 Healthy Salad Dressings by The Tasty K

April 30, 2017

On the blog, we’re sharing 4 healthy & nourishing salad dressing recipes from our friend The Tasty K. Think easy to make, plant-based, refined sugar-free, and oil-free. 

Let’s be honest, not everyone enjoys raw salads. If you’re like me and prefer your greens and salads with tons of yummy dressing on top you’ll love this.

I’ve come up with 4 healthy salad dressings that are not only completely plant-based and refined sugar-free, but also oil-free, and hence super good for you!

Also, they’re super easy to whip/blend up so that you won’t have any more excuses for not eating your green!  I have included a variety reaching from tahini-style to caesar-style to fruity and spicy peanut dressing, so I’ve got you covered for all kinds of salads.

Since your body needs those plant-based fats for optimal vitamin and mineral absorption, I personally love to base my dressings around nuts, seeds and avocados. If you prefer simple fruity dressings, make sure to add a few healthy fats to your salad in the form of nuts and seeds. Good for the taste buds and the body!
