Non Lettuce Dressings

Nifty Non-Lettuce Dressings

Although lettuce leaves form the basis of many salad recipes, there are plenty of non-lettuce salads, which means there are also plenty of non-lettuce dressings to choose from. Perhaps you want to make a potato salad or an egg salad, instead of using salad greens. These salads usually go best with something thick and creamy, so the dressing sticks to the salad. With lettuce it is often better to use a thinner dressing so you can drizzle the dressing over the leaves. Perhaps you want to make coleslaw or something similar, in which case you can use a creamy dressing. Creamy dressings do not have to be rich and you could use yogurt, crème fraîche or something other than mayonnaise to make it.

Dressings for Non-Lettuce Salads

Maybe you are making a garden salad recipe, in which case you may take your pick from all kinds of salad dressings. A garden salad is one which is made up primarily of fresh vegetables, so that could be carrot, onion, tomatoes, radishes, and celery, for example. You can see how any kind of dressing is going to suit such a salad, perhaps going for something with lemon or lime juice, or maybe you would prefer a seafood cocktail dressing or a slightly spiced or curried dressing. Whether or not you feature lettuce in your homemade salad recipe is up to you, but there is wealth of possibilities when it comes to flavorful salad dressings, and you can find something perfect for your palate.
