How to make a homemade salad dressing?

My favorite dressing to make at home is this maple-dijon one that I've been making for years now. It's very easy, uses simple wholesome ingredients, and seems to please everyone's palate!

But in general, there are a few secret tips to consider:

  • Strike a balance between sweet and salty
  • Have an acid
  • Include a fat (such as olive oil, mayonnaise, yogurt, etc)
  • Add a spice (like cinnamon, Italian seasoning, black pepper, etc)


Salt adds a brightness to the salad dressing, while also softening the acid for an easily digestible flavor.


And to balance out the salt, you'll need a sweet component like honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar.


This is what gives salad dressing that tang and extra brightness that makes it irresistible, such as red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or champagne vinegar. Lemon and limes also work wonderful.
