Plant-Based Dressing Recipes
A dressing can make or break a salad and be the deciding factor in whether someone will eat it. Therefore, a good dressing should pack a big flavor punch. There are three keys to a successful dressing:
- A bold, predominant flavor.
- The right viscosity. To give volume to a dressing, a fruit juice or vegetable broth can be used instead of oil. Using the proper amount of one of these liquids based on the other ingredients in the dressing is what will provide the right viscosity.
- An ingredient to help balance the predominant flavor. Having a little bit of a contrasting flavor is necessary to make the predominant flavor pop.
The dressings here are not only great on salads but also on steamed vegetables and grains. They’re delicious cold, but don’t be surprised if you like them warmed up too.
