Undone Salad Dressing

I don't know if you know this about me, but I am super, super lazy, especially in the kitchen. I buy pre-washed/pre-cut fruit at the grocery store because I know I'll never eat fruit if I have to do that stuff myself, I'll often plan elaborate dinners only to decide it's too much work and order something instead, and I try to use as few dishes as possible when I cook to avoid having more to clean up, which means I cut a lot of corners (like refusing to use a whisk when a fork can do almost the same job).

This always turns into a problem when it comes to salad dressing. I know I should make my own, it's healthier and cheaper and tastes better yada yada yada. I have all of the ingredients and recipes and even a special salad dressing mixer bottle to use, but when push comes to shove I always reach for the pre-made dressing so readily available in my fridge.

I tried out this quinoa bowl recipe a couple of weeks ago during a Bachelor viewing party/dinner date with one of my girlfriends (because Jeff would never, ever consider a quinoa bowl to be dinner!) and we basically freaked over how easy and good the dressing is. I call it an "undone" dressing because rather than getting out a bowl and whisking all of the ingredients together, you just sprinkle and drizzle everything over the top of your salad. No extra dishes, no extra mess!

This particular dressing is geared towards a southwest salad, but you could easily swap the lime for lemon, take out the honey, or add fresh herbs depending on your preference.

Undone Salad Dressing

You'll Need (for one salad):
Salt and Pepper
1/2 TB Olive Oil
1/4 TB Honey
1/2 Lime

Add a generous amount of salt and pepper to the top of your salad. Drizzle olive oil and honey over the top. Squeeze lime juice over everything. And you're done! I prefer to eat it as-is, but if you prefer you could mix the salad to combine the flavors. Easy peasy.

  1. I'm bringing salads to work now and I was looking for a new dressing to try, thanks for this!


  2. That looks and sounds delicious! I get super lazy with certain things in the kitchen too (like buying pre-washed lettuce), but I think it's 10000% worth taking all of 3 minutes to make your own dressing.

  3. stop! I actually have all of this in my house. I'm going to try it tonight!
