Making salad dressing at home is so easy, affordable, and much healthier for you than those store-bought ones. Who’s up for some Homemade Healthy Rosemary Salad Dressing?
Homemade Healthy Rosemary Salad Dressing
Rosemary is a woody perennial herb with needle-like leaves that give off a pleasant fragrance. I love rubbing a stem through my fingers to smell it. Rosemary is one plant that is easy to grow in your garden. This healthy rosemary salad dressing is not something I came up with, but it is a recipe I found online that I perfected for myself, which of course, I think it is a better one.
I tend to not eat salad dressing on my salad at all, especially if I’ve included veggies and fruits that are juicy. Try it sometime! And, not to mention, you’ll save a few calories, and you won’t be eating any added preservatives and such! On the other hand, when I do want salad dressing, I make my own. That way, I know what I’m eating.
There’s nothing better than making a healthy salad dressing that tastes good.
This rosemary bush is in my garden. It’s in its second year and is looking mighty healthy. A rosemary bush (in the warmer states) will sustain winter, and you’ll have it year after year in your outside garden. Grow a rosemary bush, and you’ll have an abundance of rosemary needles to make not only this homemade healthy rosemary salad dressing but homemade body products as well.
Homemade Healthy Rosemary Salad Dressing Recipe
- ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar

- 3-4 tablespoons fresh water

Benefits of Rosemary
Did you know the rosemary herb has unique attributes, such as it may help with memory loss and arthritis? I have both…so I’m eating a lot!!
Rosemary is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin A & C, iron, and many other nutrients. You should look it up when you have the time.
So, I’m betting if you make this healthy salad dressing and take my advice about not using salad dressing at all when you’ve added juicy fruits and vegetables, I think you’ll love it, and I bet you won’t ever repurchase store-bought salad dressing.
Do you make your salad dressing? I’d love to know what flavor!!
