I LOVE making my own dressings and sauces. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have a lot of store bought favorites, but there is something very satisfying about making your own and realizing how simple it is. And knowing exactly what went into it (store bought sauces can have some sneaky unhealthy ingredients and additives — or just a TON of salt and sugar).
Some of the recipes below are purely for sauce and dressing, others are for meals in which I made my own. For the latter, the dressing is called out specifically in the ingredients and directions. But hey, maybe you’ll quite literally get a meal out of it 🙂
