I love salad dressing but can rarely find one in the store that I actually like, aside from Ranch. Since I want a little variety and don't always want to have Ranch I make up dressings and this is one of them. I like knowing that all of the ingredients are healthy. The only thing that might be a little unhealthy is the soy oil in the mayo, but it tastes so good that I do sometimes indulge! I like it on a bed of baby spinach leaves with grape tomatoes. If I'm not in a hurry, I'll add other things to the salad, like Romain lettuce, walnuts, and broccoli tops. Anything, really! Enjoy!

How To Make creamy low carb salad dressing with a zip!

  • 1
    I recycle jars that things come in. I used the Pimiento jar to store the dressing in today, because it was the perfect size. I actually made it in the jar. This is also a way to use up that good pickle juice that I am reluctant to throw out, too. It is already flavored exactly the way I like it! (I buy Baby Garlic Dills.)

    Combine the mayo and pickle juice till nearly smooth.

    Add the mustard and stir some more.
  • 4
    Add the herbs and spices and you're done! Spoon a couple of tablespoons on your individual salad and enjoy the creamy zip with your fresh chilled veggies!! I love a good salad!!

    Dressing should store for more than a week, or two, if kept tightly capped in the fridge.

    This is great as a dip for broccoli, celery and other fresh raw vegetables, too.
