These 4 homemade salad dressing recipe can be prepared quickly for many easy salads throughout the week. In addition, since these dressings involve shelf-stable ingredients, they don’t have to crowd your fridge, but can sit on the counter or in a cupboard instead. Each salad dressing is different from the other, so if you prefer a Caesar salad, there is a choice for you. Alternatively, there is an Asian-inspired salad dressing if you would like to enjoy a different lettuce salad. These dressing recipes don’t have to be limited to salads, though. Instead, use the dressings as marinades for grilled meat. The acidity in the mixtures will help tenderize the meat as well as pack it with flavor. Consider marinating pork ribs in the Asian dressing for some Asian-Inspired barbecue. Alternatively, marinade the chicken in the Caesar dressing before grilling it and serve with a Caesar salad. These salad dressing recipes will have so many uses, you will want to prepare them on a weekly basis.
