My salad dressing recipes



Blue Cheese Dip

March 30th, 2013 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina

This dip is one of my US discoveries, along with celery stalks which I never tried before I came here.

These two I can eat together endlessly, as an appetizer, a side or just a snack. It just made a lot of sense to learn to mix the dip from scratch myself.

Blue cheese dip goes great with fresh vegetables (e.g. celery, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower), spicy chicken wings or as a fresh salad dressing (I would suggest to put a bit more kefir to the mix in this case).

Lettuce, Tomato and Cucumber Salad

In anticipation of the spring in early March, here goes fresh tomato, cucumber and lettuce salad recipe.

These fresh vegetables taste so good in the Spring.

Prepare the salad soon before serving, cut fresh vegetables don’t like to wait.

If you want to make dressing lighter, use light mayo and low-fat yogurt instead of sour cream.

Sour Cream and Garlic Dip

If you are bored with plain sour cream for dipping, try this improvement: add garlic, fresh greens and a dash of ground black pepper and you will get the same creamy but a bit spicy dip.

It goes great for any kind of savory vegetable pancakes (potato, zucchini, cauliflower), meat or vegetable dumplings, or even like a salad dressing for fresh vegetables – tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, etc.

Prepare dip can be stored in fridge for 2-3 days, just stir it from time to time.

Avocado Salad Dressing

This creamy avocado salad dressing somewhat resembles guacamole dip, after all it consists of almost the same ingredients, just in different proportion.

However it is much more spicy and more liquid which obviously makes it easier to dress salads with it: lettuce salad with tomatoes, avocados and shrimps is my personal choice for this dressing.

Ready spicy avocado dressing can be stored in the airtight container in fridge for several days.
