10 Sugar-free salad dressings

I’ve loved salad since I was a kid. Whenever we would have a large side salad at dinner, I would run to the kitchen when I woke up the next day to make sure I scored the leftover salad in the fridge. One of the best things about salad is a good dressing or vinaigrette to pour over it. However, most salad dressings you find in stores are loaded with sugar and chemicals 😢. So yes, unhealthy salad exists (when it’s swimming in commercial sauces). The best thing to do would be to make your own.

I’ve searched the web and found some delicious recipes for dressings. They contain no refined sugar, preservatives, or chemicals. Keep your salad healthy by bumping up the flavor with these 10 Sugar-Free Salad Dressings…

1. Citrus Vinaigrette with Thyme

Flake up some Alaskan salmon, sprinkle over some chopped spinach or kale, add a few nuts, cover with this dressing, and you have a delicious and nutritious salad on your hands!

2. Coconut Milk Ranch Dressing

You know those huge ladles they have at salad bars? I’m the person who scoops and pours the ranch dressing until their salad is DRENCHED. Not the healthiest thing ever.

The most plain salad can be mouthwatering when you add some ranch dressing – so make sure it’s healthy and sugar-free.

3. Tangy Lemon Salad Dressing

If you have some rotisserie chicken left over from dinner, make a salad with it and jazz it up with this tangy lemon dressing.

So, it’s a well-known fact in my family that I used to drink salad dressing straight from the bottle. I know, that’s really disgusting and I’m super embarassed about it. I clearly remember Greek dressing being my favorite, that’s why a healthy, sugar-free one was essential for this list!

6. Asian Salad Dressing
