Tips

  • You can use oils such as canola oil, grapeseed oil, walnut oil, avocado oil or olive oil.
  • Use fresh lemon juice.
  • Instead of lemon juice, you can use lime or orange juice.
  • You can use vinegar instead of pomegranate syrup. Red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar can be used. For more, check out our "Vinegar Types and Uses' article.
  • Add fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, and mint to the salad dressing.
  • Use savory ingredients like capers, olives, and gherkins to add a tangy flavor to your salad dressing. This increases the acidity of the sauce.
  • You can blend the salad dressing in a blender or food processor, or whip it by hand.
  • Add honey and/or mustard. These ingredients stabilize the emulsion and prevent the sauce from separating.
  • Instead of mustard, you can add an egg yolk. This keeps the sauce together.
  • Taste the sauce. Add salt and pepper to your taste.

How To Store Salad Dressing?

Homemade salad dressing can be stored in a covered airtight container or mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Vinegar-based or milk-based sauces should be stored in a cool place. If the oil hardens in the refrigerator, let the sauce sit at room temperature for several hours. Then serve with any dish or salad of your choice.

Can Salad Dressing Be Frozen? No. It is not recommended to freeze oil-based sauces. The texture of the sauce may deteriorate in the freezer. Therefore, it is best to store it in the refrigerator.
