Take your salads to the next level with this easy, quick and gorgeous Pomegranate Dressing. This healthy dressing is beyond delicious and couldn’t be any easier!
1 blender. 5 ingredients. Less than 5 minutes. That’s all it takes to make this luscious and incredibly tasty pomegranate vinaigrette. It’s vegan, paleo, dairy-free, sugar-free and so nutritious. I made this with whole pomegranate seeds, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic and a touch of ginger. It’s absolutely delicious and it will boost the nutritional content of your meal.
This light, fruity, tangy and sweet vinaigrette is perfect for all your salads and Buddha bowls. I’m a huge salad dressing fan. I need dressings, I think a salad with no dressing is just a boring, unfinished meal. I don’t get people that don’t add dressings to their veggies (sorry, not sorry). To me, a good dressing is what makes a salad awesome, a good dressing will complement and enhance the salad ingredients’ flavor.
But why make your own salad dressing when you can buy one?! Because store-bought dressings are usually loaded with unhealthy ingredients like refined oils, sugars, additives and preservatives. Also, homemade salad dressings are easy, quick and cheaper than store-bought. And they can be loaded with health benefits. Like this vibrant pomegranate vinaigrette. We know garlic and olive oil are incredibly good for you. But did you know pomegranates are one of the healthiest fruits on the planet? Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants and have a lot of health benefits. Want to know more? Check out this link.
