Elevate Your Salad Game: 3 Delicious Dressings for Every Occasion

As warmer months, aka grilling season approaches, we love a refreshing salad to pair with our fav barbecue!!

While fresh microgreens form the foundation, it's the dressing that can truly elevate your salad experience! Today, we're exploring three delectable dressings, each bringing its own unique flair to the table.

1. Light and Summery Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing: When it comes to simplicity and classic flavor, you can't go wrong with an olive oil and vinegar dressing. This timeless combination is not only incredibly easy to make but also adds a refreshing tanginess to your salad. To whip up this dressing, simply combine:

1/4 cup of a high quality extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup vinegar of choice – balsamic/ red wine/white wine/ apple cider vinegar.
Salt, & freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard for extra depth!
This dressing is perfect for those hot summer days when you crave something light and refreshing to complement your crisp greens from Giant Gorilla Greens!


2. Rich & Creamy Yogurt Dressing: If you prefer your dressings to have a creamy texture without the guilt, look no further than a yogurt-based dressing. Yogurt adds a lusciousness while still keeping things on the lighter side. You will need:


1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (or soy yoghurt)
3 cloves minced garlic
Chopped fresh herbs (such as dill or Micro Basil from GGG),
Juice of 1 lemon, and
1 tablespoon maple syrup


Adjust the consistency by adding a splash of oat milk or water until you reach your desired thickness. This dressing pairs beautifully with a potato salad, roasted vegetables or grilled chicken, adding a luxurious touch to every bite.


3. Sweet & Tangy Tahini Dressing: For those craving a dressing with a unique twist, look to tahini for a flavor-packed option. Made from ground sesame seeds, tahini lends a nutty richness to any salad. To create a sweet and tangy tahini dressing, whisk together:


1/3 cup tahini paste
Juice of one lemon,
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon maple syrup,
1 teaspoon cumin powder 


Thin the mixture with warm water until it reaches a pourable consistency. This dressing adds an irresistible depth of flavor to salads featuring ingredients like roasted sweet potatoes, chickpeas, or quinoa, making it a versatile option for any occasion!


No matter your preference, these three salad dressings are sure to take your salads from ordinary to extraordinary. Whether you're hosting a summer barbecue, enjoying a light lunch on the patio, or simply looking to add a burst of flavor to your meal, these dressings are guaranteed to delight your taste buds and leave you craving more. So, grab your favorite greens, get creative with your toppings, and drizzle on one of these mouthwatering dressings for a salad experience that's anything but ordinary.
