Salad Dressing Recipes

Hi Friends,
Last night I dove head first into making my own salad dressings. I found the recipes in my favorite Cooking Light magazines. Adding and subtracting some of the ingredients, 2 dressings failed but I came up with 3 winners.

Make sure to play with your recipes, they aren't written in stone. Always be brave in the kitchen, if something doesn't turn out that's ok, there's always next time.

Enjoy the recipes
