Do you love salads as much as I do? I literally eat at least one salad a day. I aim for one raw meal a day and a salad usually fits the bill perfectly. The cool thing about salads is that you can use a different dressing every day so you won’t get bored.  I store all my homemade dressings in old glass containers. If you have read my previous post you already know I have an obsession with reusing glass containers.   One thing to keep in mind when making homemade salad dressings is that  they will solidify.   If your dressing solidifies when cold,  just take it out and leave it at room temperature for 30 minutes or so. Make sure you shake it or stir it every time before you place it on your salad. The following are a few of my favorite homemade salad dressings.
