If you are looking for a homemade vegan salad dressing recipe that is also healthy and delicious, then you are in the right place!
Homemade salad dressings are so much better than store-bought ones. They are healthier, don’t contain any fillers or preservatives, waaay cheaper, and cut down on waste.
Although I do occasionally still buy salad dressings from the store, I usually try to make my own. All you need is a piece of fruit and some other simple ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry.
The recipe listed below is
And can be made three different ways with 1 simple swap!
Vegan Pear Dressing
- 1 pear (chopped and cored)
- 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1.5 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp olive oil (optional)
- 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp sherry wine vinegar
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- Put all ingredients into a blender and blend for 30 sec – 1 min.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
As I said, this recipe can be made three different ways. Not only can you make a Pear Dressing, but it can also be made into Orange Dressing or Apple Dressing by simply swapping out the pear with an orange or apple!
The Apple Dressing is fresher and lighter, while the Orange Dressing is tangy and sweet.
I have tried all three ways and each one is delicious! Although I do tend to make the pear and orange dressing the most.
You can choose to peel the skin off your apple or pear, but I find that it is not needed. The texture of the dressing is still really smooth with the skin left on (plus it adds some extra fiber)!
The ingredients in this recipe can be modified to adjust the flavors to whatever your heart desires! Let me know in the comments below if you have any suggestions or are going to try this delicious, vegan salad dressing!
