Use nourishing ingredients with health-promoting ingredients

Oil: Oils are used as the base of a salad dressing and to add a smooth consistency and flavour. Good quality oils contain healthy essential fat that the body cannot make on its own. These fats actually help lower cholesterol, blood sugar levels, speed up the metabolism, and protect the body form free radicals by supporting the immune system. 
Try: hemp oil, flax seed oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil

Vinegar/acid: A little goes a long way when adding vinegar/acid to a dressing for flavour and health benefits. Vinegars add a unique taste while encouraging a healthy bowel, improving digestion, and providing the body with vitamins and nutrients. Citrus acids from lemon also support digestion and are full of minerals and vitamins. Adding citrus acids to salad greens actually helps the body absorb nutrients while providing the body with antioxidants.
Try: apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, fresh lime juice, balsamic vinegar, coconut vinegar, brown rice vinegar

Thickener: Adding your own natural thickener to a salad dressing ensures that you’re not consuming cheap filler. Thickeners are helpful in emulsifying all of the ingredients together. Based on preference, you may add a sweet or savoury natural sweetener to bring out the flavour in the salad dressing. Thickening agents can be as basic as Dijon and extend to ground chia seeds to add even more omega fats.  
Try: Dijon, tahini, avocado, chia seeds, ground flaxseeds, honey, maple syrup.
