Hey peeps! You know how much I love my bowls and salads- all those veggies, grains and other mix ins are so good! But let’s be honest here, what really makes a salad, bowl, or even sandwich or wrap is the DRESSING. Dips, dressings and spreads add so much flavour and colour, and depending on the type, even a nice texture. They truly have the power to level up any meal, and can even stand alone and have veggies, crackers, or pita dipped into them!
Having a couple of these recipes prepped and ready to go in the fridge at the beginning of the week is a great idea. This way you can use them when meal prepping, making dinner, or when you want a quick snack. An amazing sauce can transform a boring school lunch into something you can’t wait to eat, and it’s one of the easiest ways to do so. I especially love to have some good hummus on hand at all times- I could put hummus on anything.
Each of these dips and dressings are easy to whip up and full of delicious flavour, so you can get maximum tastiness in the shortest amount of time possible. Here they are!
This Roasted Carrot and Onion Dip is LEGIT. The roasted garlic and amazing spices takes everything up a notch, and look at that colour!!!! It’s great in wraps or sandwiches, as a dip, or dolloped onto a salad.
The epitome of freshness, this herb-y dressing comes together in a snap in a blender or food processor. It combines parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, and some olive oil to make a simple yet delicious addition to any bowl or salad! I used it in this Cauliflower Rice Salad.
Hummus is one of my favourite things ever, and this one is so delicious! It’s fell of fresh herbs and is amazing paired with veggies or your favourite cracker.
This sauce is used in my Roasted Cauliflower Wraps, but it would be amazing on any salad or bowl! Spreading it on your toasty bread before making a sandwich would be super tasty as well. It is easily made in a blender and includes simple ingredients.
This dressing, seen here on my Brussels Sprout, Fig and Walnut Salad is so dreamy!! Delicious roasted garlic is mixed with tahini, lemon juice, and some maple to make a creamy sauce that’s full of flavour. This is great for salads and bowls- warm ones in particular!
Eggplant, anyone? This amazing dip is so creamy that it’s almost fluffy, and is composed of roasted eggplant, garlic, and tahini. It’s a middle eastern favourite and makes a great snack or appetizer!
Love a good balsamic, but wish it could be creamy? Don’t we all! With this Creamy Avocado Balsamic Dressing, you get an amazing texture with that delicious balsamic flavour. Perfect for any bowl or salad!
Everyone needs a good guac recipe! This one does not require any blender and is so fresh tasting! Perfect for tacos, wraps, and sandwiches, or as a delicious dip.
This is an OG recipe- and such a good one! Made with Greek yogurt and full of fresh dill, garlic, and lemon, this classic Greek dip/spread is an amazing accompaniment to roasted veggies, the perfect addition to wraps, and great with salads. It’s super easy to whip up and so fresh!
Another great hummus recipe! You can never have too many:) This one gives me some fall vibes from that delicious butternut squash, but it’s tasty any time of the year! Hummus is amazing one basically anything you can think of. Spread it on veg, wraps, toast, or crackers, or serve it on your favourite bowl.
Enjoy these amazing dip and dressing recipes!!
