Today, I gift to you the recipe for my creamy herb dressing. Why? Because if there’s one thing you should stop buying immediately, it’s bottled salad dressing! Not only is it a waste of money, but you completely have no idea what you’re eating. Making your own salad dressings will probably save your life. You don’t have to thank me.
This recipe is super versatile. There’s endless savory dishes and snacks that creamy herb dressing can be used in. Chop up some vegetable sticks and dip ’em, or drizzle it on top of my mango chik’n salad! You won’t believe you spent so many years buying store bought dressing!

Here’s a creamy and fresh salad dressing you can put on any salad or use as a veggie dip.
- 1/2 C cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil

- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Blend all the ingredients together in a high-powered blender until smooth.
Pour into a jar or bottle, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using on a salad.
Try this dressing on my mango chik’n salad… it’s delish! This will last up to 7 days in the fridge.

this is exactly what I was looking for, amazing !
What can I substitute the hemp seeds with?
Wow…I love this dressing! Its perfect because it dose not contain soy which my husband has a sensitivity to and it does not contain cashews which are very expensive, so I try not to buy them. My husband and I do not like dill or parsley so I decide to add 1/4 tsp coriander powder instead.
I use this dressing to make a ceasar salad. I just add equal amounts of chopped kale and romaine hearts, green onions, coconut bacon flakes and gluten free croutons (I have celiac disease). The brand of gluten free croutons I buy are actually too crunchy. Their like trying to chew on a rock. Not sure if all gluten free brands are like this. I would suggest for people wanting to try this version of ceasar salad to add your croutons to the dressing and let them soak for a round 15 minutes in it before adding the dressing to your salad. That will make the croutons less crunchy. I have never tried your salad because my husband does not like garlic very much. It may be because garlic upsets his stomach. Thanks so much for this wonderful dressing.
