These days, I try to “eat clean” and have reduced the amount of processed foods I buy, especially if it’s something I can easily make myself. When I started reading labels, I was surprised at how many salad dressings contain ingredients I don’t want, such as high fructose corn syrup and MSG.
But I found out it’s really easy to make your own delicious salad dressings, and frankly, I think mine taste better than the store bought ones. If you’re trying to eat clean, make sure that the ketchup and other components used don’t include an ingredient you’re wanting to avoid.
- 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (half of a small jar, or about 6 heaping kitchen tablespoons full)
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons sweet relish
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
In a small bowl, stir all ingredients until well mixed. Store covered in refrigerator; use within a week.
