The Daily Meal
Salads are a great way to enjoy summer vegetables and fruits, but I tend to find myself using the same lemon and olive oil dressing to coat my greens, salad and after salad. While it is delicious and easy to use, there are a ton of other creative vinaigrettes out there that help spruce up salads and make usual go-to recipes a little more exciting.
We turned to cookbook author Jeff Keys, whose recent book Well Dressed is filled with fun and exotic ideas for inspiration, and came up with a creamy avocado dressing of our own.
Try one of these four ideas below, and please let us know if you have any more to share!
Fresh Basil Vinaigrette
These flavors a perfect blend for three-bean or similar salads. And the flavors only get better after a day in the fridge.
Avocado and Mint Dressing
The creamy avocado in this dressing pairs well with the invigorating and bright taste of fresh mint and works wonderfully for a light yet filling summer salad.
Honey-Roasted Raspberry Vinaigrette
The anise-like flavor of tarragon blends well with the sweetness of summer raspberries making this a fantastic dressing.
Sesame Mint Vinaigrette
A salad dressing that capitalizes on exotic flavors from around the world.
