I am sorry to hear about your challenges. Despite feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of making salad dressing, I urge you to consider taking a stab at it - it doesn't have to be difficult and you would have some assurance about the ingredients. Store bought dressings have preservatives and nothing beats the pop of fresh dressing. Here are some easy and delicious dressing ideas.
1. Equal parts olive oil and orange juice, small spoonful of prepared mustard. Shake or stir.
2. Equal parts olive oil, water and pomegranate molasses/syrup, pinch of salt. Shake.
3. 2 parts olive oil, 1 part water, 1 part lemon juice, 1 clove crushed garlic, a little prepared mustard, salt and pepper. Shake or stir.
Greens, chopped celery, chopped apples, chopped walnuts. Use dressing 1.
Arugula, orange slices, shredded carrots and parsnips, radishes, sliced almonds is desired. Use dressing 2
Romaine leaves, sliced green onion, a few crushed walnuts, canned kidney or white beans. Use dressing 3.
Arugula or baby Kale, cooked wild rice - rinsed, sliced almonds, chopped fresh parsley or basil (handful), dried sour cherries or cranberries, chopped - use dressing 1 or 3.
