MAKE a SINGLE SERVING of FRESH, Homemade Salad Dressing in less than 30-seconds!!!
If you don’t make salad often or are cooking for one or two people, single serve salad dressing recipes are the way to go!
Keep it fresh and simple. Here’s the salad dressing recipe I used to top delcious greens that I grew in my Foodie Gardener Community Garden! This salad dressing is both diabetic and keto-friendly too!
You will need olive oil, (or oil of choice), apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, a little water, and salt and pepper!
I prefer to make single serving salad dressing because larger batches may not be used frequently and will linger in the refrigerator!
If I want to extend the usefulness of a larger quantity of homemade salad dressing, I would need to add an emulsifier like guar gum or xanthan gum.
Guar gum and xanthan gum certainly are diabetic-friendly, but I prefer to use these emulsifiers when making a creamy dressing or for baking.
A one-time serving of fresh salad dressing does not need an emulsifier because you consume it right after mixing it.
Store-bought salad dressings has preservatives and ingredients to help emulsify or keep the ingredients well mixed. Some of these emulsifiers create a thick texture for an oil based dressing that should otherwise be lightweight and gently coat the salad greens.
In addition to texture changes to the salad dressing, I don’t need extra ingredients that can potentially raise my blood sugar level. Whipping up a small serving of homemade salad dressing is so easy to do.
Ingredients (Single Serve)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil (or oil of choice)
- 1 teaspoon of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar (or vinegar of choice)
- 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon of water
- a tiny drop (not a dropperful) of liquid Stevia – My favorite non-sugar sweetener is SteviaClear
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Any dried or fresh herbs that you desire
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together to combine.
I use a battery operated whisk (a milk frother) to combine my oil and water! Top your salad with your homemade single-serving oil and vinegar dressing!
