3 DIY Oil Free Salad Dressing Recipes | Easy + Healthy



hey guys it's Danny and today I am sharing three kalenna delicious DIY oil-free salad dressings now I have shared some salad dressing recipes with you all in the past and I did get a lot of requests for some oil free variations which makes a lot of sense to me because while oils can be very healthy they are extremely concentrated sources of fat so by taking them out of the dressing you're really going to lighten your dressings up a bit and if you want to incorporate those healthy fats into your salads you can do that by adding things like avocados and nuts and seeds so the three variations I'll be sharing with you today are a honey mustard vinaigrette a tahini lemon dressing and then finally a carrot ginger dressing so can I please get a big thumbs up for some oil free variety now all of these recipes make about one cup of dressing and store it in an airtight container in your refrigerator they should last easily a week for my first recipe we're going to be doing the honey mustard vinaigrette and I am gonna do this in my food processor this is a four cup food processor it's definitely one of my most used kitchen tools so if you guys are interested in checking it out I will leave a link down in the description box below so in to my food processor goes 1/2 a cup of roughly chopped white onion and then a quarter cup each Dijon mustard apple cider vinegar honey and filtered water now you're gonna notice in these recipes that I'm gonna be adding a little extra water to help thin out the dressings since we're not going to be using the oil then I have about a half a teaspoon of salt and a little bit of black pepper pop on the lid and blend that up until you have a nice thin vinaigrette I like to let it blend in one direction and then I go in the opposite direction and just alternate back and forth until I have the texture that I'm looking for and you can see this is thin and horrible the flavor of this dressing is a little bit sweet with a nice little tang so I like to pair it on salads that I have a little bit of bite to them so here I have spicy arugula with some thin sliced red onion and a few cherry tomatoes then I just drizzle the dressing over the top and you've got yourself a match made in heaven my second recipe is a tahini lemon dressing and for this one you can do it right in a spouted cup or a small bowl you don't need to blend it up mixing it by hand will get the job done so I'm starting out with 1/2 a cup of tahini if you're not familiar with tahini all it is is sesame paste so think of it as like almond butter or like peanut butter but it's made with sesame seeds instead then to that I am adding 1 clove of crushed garlic 1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice 1/4 cup of hot water and some salt and pepper the hot water is what's going to help to thin this dressing out then you're just gonna grab a fork and whisk it all together until it starts to loosen up a bit if you want it to be a little bit thinner and you would just add a little bit more hot water and if you like a little bit of sweetness to it you could also add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup now because this dressing is so thick and hearty I like to pair it with really Hardy greens so for this salad I'm just doing a really simple kale salad with some carrots over the top then I drizzle on the dressing tossed it together because you really got a massage this one in and you've got yourself a hearty delicious rib sticker salad ready to go and fYI you could easily book this salad up by adding some chopped apples some red cabbage some sunflower seeds you name it whatever you got in your fridge I say GF I go for it and then for our third and final recipe I am doing a carrot ginger dressing and this is the dressing that you get it like Japanese restaurants we love that dressing so this is the oil-free version now for this dressing you do need to put it into like some type of high-power blender because we have to break down the carrots and the ginger and the onions so into my blender goes three quarters of a cup of roughly chopped carrots that I am also peeled then I have one heaping tablespoon of grated ginger you really don't need more than that specially if you were grading it up because ginger has a really powerful flavor then I have a tablespoon of honey to round it out a quarter cup of chopped white onion then four tablespoons of orange juice you can do fresh-squeezed or store-bought whatever you have on hand one tablespoon of lime juice 1/4 cup of water that's gonna help thin things out and a little bit of salt and pepper pop on your lid let everything blend up until everything is broken down and you have a nice thin dressing just like this this one has a little bit more texture to it but it still be fairly horrible if you need to thin it out again a little extra juice or a little extra water will get the job done then I will transfer that into an airtight container I love using these little mason jars because one you can see through them so you know what's in the fridge and two would you pop on the lid they're sealed so they're good to go now this dressing I personally like with a lot of crunchy vegetables so the salad that I'm using here today it's got crunchy romaine lettuce and then I have some cucumbers and cauliflower and red cabbage with some sugar snap peas and then some tomatoes as well just drizzle the dressing over the top and the salad is ready to go this one would also be extra delicious with some avocado over the top so there you have it guys three very simple
