Midweek Mealtime - Salad Dressings

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

It's the last day of my Shakeology Cleanse, so I thought for this week, I'd give you a couple of my favorite homemade dressing recipes.  There is nothing like making your own dressing, knowing exactly what goes into it.

These two dressings have very similar bases.  The first dressing is a creamy Parmesan dressing.  The second one is actually a recipe from the Ultimate Reset and is a creamy garlic dressing.  While both dressings have an oil and acid base, neither resemble Italian dressing - which is a HUGE plus for me.  I was always more of a ranch girl, myself.  The creamier the better.  These dressings satisfy that craving without the heavy mayonnaise or cream base.

The best part about these recipes is actually how much they *aren't* like recipes.  Simply add the listed ingredients to a blender and blend until well-combined.  These dressings can be kept in the refrigerator for a week.  Also, I count these as 1 orange container in the 21 Day Fix.
