I need a new salad dressing option!
My salad dressing of choice couldn't be less uninspired: balsamic vinegar. Does anyone have a favorite recipe?
Have you thought about thinning out hummus with some lemon juice and/or oil? I've never used a recipe for it, just sort of scooped a blob of hummus into a bowl and added enough liquid to make it pourable. It's really good! I also like to use toppings like cottage cheese, guacamole, or salsa that make their own dressing around the salad, depending on the contents of the salad.
