Preparing food at home is one of the easiest ways to avoid overly processed items. Salad dressings are a good place to start. For very little time and effort, you can have a tasty accompaniment for your salad greens.
This week I made Garlic Sesame Salad Dressing from Mason Jar Salad Dressing 9 Ways at tasty.co
Because I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, which already have a little sweetness, I cut back on the brown sugar.
You can compare the ingredients in this dressing with those found in a popular bottled brand.
Ingredients: WATER, SOYBEAN OIL, SUGAR, SOY SAUCE (WATER, SOYBEANS, WHEAT, SALT), CIDER VINEGAR, SESAME OIL, WHITE VINEGAR, NATURAL FLAVOUR (CONTAINS BARLEY), SALT, SPICES, XANTHAN GUM (THICKENER), SESAME SEEDS, POTASSIUM SORBATE (MAINTAINS QUALITY), POLYSORBATE 60 (PREVENTS OIL SEPARATION), PROPYLENE GLYCOL ALGINATE (THICKENER), DRIED GARLIC, COLOUR, CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA (MAINTAINS FLAVOUR).

I’ve also made, and enjoyed, the Italian Salad Recipe from the same site.
