Make dressings and sauces at home with these ingredients:

Updated: Feb 9

Dressings, sauces & dips at home is E.Z.

The most important part: making sure you have healthy ingredients on hand. The rest is creative and up to you!

Here are some tips:

  • Make a batch to last a couple meals and then store in the fridge in a glass jar.

  • Shake before use.

  • Notice how the flavours intensify over time.

  • Manage consistency with water and liquid ingredients.

Ingredient ideas:

  • Liquid oils like- 100% olive oil, hemp oil, cold pressed nut / seed oils

  • Lemon / lime / orange / other fresh juices- these act as a natural preservative

  • Apple cider vinegar- use unpasteurized and this acts as a natural preservative

  • Other vinegars like balsamic / wine

  • Hot sauce

  • Tamari / soy sauce

Herbs & spices:

  • To make fresh & nutritious dips you can blend fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, parsley, mint etc.

  • Dried herbs / spices

  • Fresh cracked pepper

  • Sea salt / rock salt

To thicken:

  • Nut / seed pastes

  • Miso paste

  • Powdered spices

  • Yogurt

  • Hard cheeses like parmesan and soft cheeses like goat, feta, etc.

At home we can control ingredient listings and batch size to keep our meals fresh + nutritious!
