Addressing Dressing: The Fundamental American Favs Ranch, Italian, Caesar

I was so surprised about how many Paleo salad dressing recipes I’ve pinned that use olive oil and vinegar. Totally not PC (paleo-conscious). So here’s an attempt at full-paleo dressings:

To make it twentysomething friendly, I recommend putting half of each batch in recycled salad dressing bottles in the fridge and freezing the other half in ice cube trays. When you bring a salad to work, pop one or two frozen dressing-cubes in your Tupperware and by lunch it should be thawed!Then, when you don’t have ice trays and the dollar store doesn’t either, recycle an empty egg carton and line with aluminum foil.

Barely any cooking is involved with dressings, just a lot of blending/food processing.
General Rule of Thumb: they keep for a month in the fridge and a month and a half in the freezer.
