Healthy Creamy Paleo Salad Dressings

3 Paleo-Approved Salad Dressings (Extra Creamy!)

Hey y’all!  Today, I’m thrilled to have partnered with Primal Kitchen to bring you 3 healthy and paleo-approved salad dressing recipes.

We all know salads are healthy for us.  However, when we start adding those store-bought salad dressings that are full of artificial ingredients, preservatives, and pro-inflammatory oils, we pretty much negate the health benefits of the salad itself!

That’s why it’s so important to learn how to make healthy, homemade dressings using real ingredients.

And, what’s even better is… you can whip these dressings up in less than 5 minutes (seriously!)

Why I’m Using the Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayo…

I’ll be using the Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayonnaise as the base for these 3 salad dressing recipes.

And, to be completely honest (which I always strive to be), this is the only mayonnaise I will consume (unless I make my own mayo) because it uses minimal ingredients and includes avocado oil instead of vegetable oils (i.e. soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil, etc.)

Benefits of Avocado Oil:

  • It’s not derived from a genetically modified source
  • It boosts the bioavailability of nutrients it’s paired with (aka increases nutrient absorption)
  • It has the ability to lower blood pressure in some people
  • It has anti-inflammatory properties
  • It contains Vitamin E
  • It’s a great source of oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat

So, what’s in Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Mayo?

Here’s a breakdown to show you exactly what’s in the Primal Kitchen Mayo.

The mayo is free from:  sugar, gluten, dairy, soy and pro-inflammatory vegetable oils.  It’s also non-GMO Project Verified

As you can see, this mayonnaise is super clean, which makes me a very excited girl because I always loved mayonnaise growing up!  As a child, my dad would give me mayonnaise crackers… haha!

Well, now we can enjoy mayo again without feeling guilty.

If you love Creamy Salad Dressings…

I admit… I’ve never been a huge fan of the liquid-y Vinaigrette salad dressings.  I’m more of a thicker, creamy type.  Are you?

If so, then you’ll love these 3 salad dressings because they’re super creamy and full of flavor.

Now, you can enjoy that creamy Ranch, Thousand Island, and Honey Mustard dressing again without destroying your health and waistline!
