4 simple summer salad dressings

A good salad needs a great dressing and you'll love these homemade versions of the classics. From creamy Caesar to punchy French, these dressings are easy to whip up - perfect for BBQ season.

Clockwise from top: Ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, Caesar dressing, French dressing

Ranch dressing

An all-American classic is creamy and herby, with a hint of garlic that works well with extra crisp salad leaves or in a potato salad. This lighter take is just as herby and creamy, with a fraction of the fat!

Blue cheese dressing

Creamy and cool with a mature tang of blue cheese, this luscious dressing is great when partnered with a spicy main, like piri piri or buffalo chicken. It also makes a fantastic dip - cut up some carrots and cucumbers and watch everyone dig in.

Caesar dressing

An all-time classic, there's a reason why Caesar dressing is a family favourite. And making your own is super simple; as in this recipe. Tinned anchovies might sound a bit scary, but these delicate fish are vital for providing that satisfying saltiness to this dressing - not to mention it's traditional!


Honey and mustard are a match made in heaven, in everything from chicken dishes to steak sauces to salad dressings. This traditional salad partner has a spicy mustard zip and a subtle honey sweetness, great for dressing a side salad or some baby leaves.
