The Best Homemade Salad Dressing Recipe

I quickly threw together this salad dressing recipe the other day and filmed the process. I posted it to my Instagram stories and so many people wanted the recipe! So here it is: my super simple but very tasty salad dressing recipe. I make this several times a week!!

Now, listen I don’t really use measurements as I think everyones taste pallet is different, but here are the ingredients I use! Watch my step-by-step reel if you need a bit more guidance.

Here’s my Recipe:


  • EVOO
  • Balsamic
  • Dry mustard
  • S + p
  • Garlic salt
  • Dry oregano
  • Dry basil
  • Italian seasoning
  • Dollop of hummus
  • Lemon juice
  • Maple syrup
  • Fresh garlic

Combine ingredients, stir, and pour over desired salad. It really is just that easy!

The hummus is definitely a game changer! It gives the dressing some texture. Maple syrup may sound weird but it balances out the flavors. Without it, I find the dressing is too acidic/tangy tasting.

I find this dressing pairs well with a garden salad, complete with your choice of greens, cherry tomatoes, feta, and red onion. I know how expensive produce can be, so I recommend buying everything in bulk from Costco!

Let me know your thoughts on this simple, yet tasty dressing! Save this post for the next time you make salad 🙂
