Delicious Homemade Salad Dressings & Vinaigrettes #ad #SaveItSunday #FoodFairyTale

Salad dressing is something that people are very passionate about.  If a favorite kind of dressing is missing from the potluck, they might skip the salad all together.  I think everyone assumes that everyone likes Ranch dressing, but that is not true!  I cannot eat Ranch dressing at all, but my husband and kids do!  My favorite is Italian or some vinaigrettes.  I love tangy, robust flavor on my salad and veggies!

The store bought salad dressings, however, are packed with preservatives to make them last longer and shelf stable.  There are so many delicious homemade salad dressing and vinaigrette recipes, and I have collected a few here for you to choose from.  After you pick your favorite, scroll down to see how I'm taking my salad on the go these days!

Being a stay-at-home mom, I do not often take my lunch to eat outside of the house.  Sometimes we have a nice picnic or go to the zoo, however, and a nice salad with homemade salad dressing would be a great meal.  But then there's the issue of how do you transport the salad dressing.  Do you take the whole bottle? Look for a small bag?  Before I know it, I usually talk myself out of the salad and choose something more convenient.  That was until I found the Glad® To Go Lunch containers with a dressing cup that snaps into the lid.  The cup stays secure until I need to drizzle it all over my delicious salad.  That solved that problem!

It's easy to prep the salads the night before and store them in the fridge, too.  Just grab and go on your way to the park, zoo, picnic, work, or wherever you may be headed for the day!  Find more food protection pointers on the Glad website, and print out an my fridge guides for proper food storage times, too!
