Other Uses for Salad Dressings

Salad dressings are, as the name would suggest, usually used to dress a salad, but what about making your salad dressing multitask? Making homemade salad dressings is quick and easy but making something which you can use for other recipes means you can get two or three uses out of one salad dressing.

Multipurpose salad dressings are really handy. If you are spending time measuring out ingredients, finely chopping herbs and shaking everything together, you might want to use the dressing more than once.

A Few Examples

Use Italian dressing to marinate meat. It is also nice to use in bean salads, pasta salads and green salads. Honey Dijon dressing is great with pork or chicken and roast potatoes. What about emboldening it first with some minced garlic and onion?

Balsamic vinaigrette is really versatile and you can use it on a mozzarella and eggplant sandwich, on an antipasto salad or to dress grilled portabella mushrooms. Double cheesy dressings as dips for cut vegetables or chips, or try them on your hamburger instead of melted cheese and mayonnaise.

Other Uses for Salad DressingsA citrus or creamy dill dressing is nice with fish or seafood. Try berry vinaigrettes with poultry, and in particular with dark meats. The sweetness of the berries is lovely with chicken thighs. Throw in a few whole berries for a nicer presentation and some extra zing.

More Salad Dressing Ideas

You can mix and match your favorite dressings to make all kinds of rice salad or macaroni salad variations, adding sweetness with fruit juice, a tang with berries, or a cheesy flavor with blue cheese like Gorgonzola or Roquefort, or your favorite cheese. Keep the salad dressing bottles and wash them out, because they are handy for storing your next batch of homemade salad dressing.
