When you’re eating Paleo, chances are a fair amount of lunches will include salads. Yes, there are plenty of other meals to cook (like these Paleo lunch recipes), but when your main food groups are protein and veggies, salads make a lot of sense. After all, they can be customized a million different ways and take very little time to prep.
One of the ways to make salads a little more exciting? Change up the dressing. Make one (or two or five) of these Paleo salad dressings to rotate throughout the week. They taste just as a good (if not better) than store-bought kinds, and by making them homemade, you can guarantee that no amount of dairy, processed sugar, or preservatives will sneak in there. Bonus: Most of them can double as a dip for veggies or a sauce to dunk chicken or fish in too.
Store-bought honey mustard tends to be loaded with sugar, but a few healthy swaps and it can be perfect for Paleo. This easy recipe calls for just four ingredients and tastes like a salad you’d pay $12 for (we all do it). Combine lemon juice, Dijon mustard, honey, and olive oil for a sweet dressing that has a hint of a kick.
