Grapeseed Oil Salad Dressing Recipe

No-Excuse Homemade Grapeseed Oil Salad Dressing

Salad dressing is one condiment you can leave off of your store list; not only is it easier to make at home than running to the store, but it also becomes healthier when made in the comfort of your own kitchen. I like to use grapeseed oil so that I have the versatility of using the dressing in a warm salad as well as colder greens. Since grapeseed oil has a higher smoke point than olive oil, it doesn't degrade when heated up in a pan as olive oil tends to do.

Notes

To switch up the flavor a bit, you can make small swaps for each ingredient in the dressing: instead of always using grapeseed oil, try subbing in olive or walnut oil once in a while. Lemon juice is great, but vinegar and mustard serve as flavorful substitutions. Garlic can even take a backseat to shallots or ginger if you want to preserve your breath. Lastly, don't be afraid to play around with different herbs and spices; rosemary and thyme can give your greens a kick without taking over the flavor of your solid ingredients.
