Several of the recipes below use Dijon mustard as an ingredient and in my research I discovered that most Paleo enthusiasts consider Dijon Mustard to be Paleo if you buy the right brand. Annies Homegrown Organic Dijon Mustard is an acceptable brand for a Paleo diet. I got most of my information about whether mustard is allowed on the diet from The Paleo List. You are welcome to check out this website which also includes a recipe for homemade paleo mustard. I also wanted to make sure that red wine vinegar is allowed on the Paleo diet and found that it is, but I also found an easy recipe for homemade red wine vinegar that you might find interesting and you might want to try making on your own at Mark’s Daily Apple. I also learned a lot about balsamic vinegar at Mark’s Daily Apple. Incidentally I found Mark’s Daily Apple to be very informative and interesting if you ever have questions about whether or not an ingredient is Paleo diet friendly. Of course Mark’s Daily Apple isn’t an official authority on the subject, but I thought there was a lot of interesting information there.
Some of the recipes call for mayonnaise. It is easy to make homemade mayonnaise which will make the Paleo diet list. I have my own homemade mayo recipe for recipe below.
I really enjoy and look forward to late summer when all the vegetables in my garden are ready to eat. If you don’t already, you should consider growing a garden, however large or small. Small planter boxes are a lot of fun and don’t take much space. You can put it on a deck, and you can plant a salad garden which includes all the ingredients for a great salad. It is a lot of fun to watch plants grow – truly a miracle to watch. The vegetables are so fresh and much healthier for us and you can also save a lot of money. I really enjoy getting my hands in the dirt. It’s good therapy and a great stress reliever. My favorites to grow in my garden are cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, swiss chard, beets, lettuce, zucchini, crook neck squash and all other kinds of squash. Right now the cucumbers, tomatoes and carrots are ready to eat! So, there ya go – I have great ingredients for a delicious fresh salad.
I hope you enjoy the recipes for the Paleo salad dressings below on your favorite salads.
