Honey Dill Vinaigrette Dressing


Honey Dill Vinaigrette

As swimsuit and shorts season are upon us, I’m quickly reminded that I need to be eating a little more healthy.  Increasing my greens and eating more salads is a cinch in the summer with all the lush produce readily available.  Making my own dressing lets me control what I drizzle over my salad, as well as, and saves me money.  I don’t know about you, but I hate having a refrigerator full of dressing bottles that have only been used a time or two drives me insane!  Not only are the store bought dressings expensive, they are often filled with additives and chemicals.

Tomorrow is the Salad Social and I’ll be sharing the salad I made for this Honey Dill Vinaigrette dressing, but it would also be amazing drizzled over roasted asparagus.  This dressing is simple and can be whipped up in a matter of a few short minutes, and it’s much better than anything you can buy off a supermarket shelf!

 I can’t wait to see what you all have been tossing up!

    There is nothing like homemade salad dressing. If I had to choose a few herbs that screamed “summer” to me, one of them would have to be dill. This sounds perfect for our summer salads.
