This Simple Salad Dressing is the easiest healthy salad dressing recipe to use on your salads. It’s so simple that you won’t even believe there are only 3 ingredients to use.

I stopped eating Renee’s Mighty Caesar Salad Dressing with my spinach salads a few months ago. 

I was left bewildered about what salad dressing to use that was dairy-free. 

My brother’s girlfriend shared with me her tasty balsamic dressing. 

I don’t love balsamic dressing so it was a fill-in until I could find something else. 

Then it happened. The perfect salad dressing found me, all the way in the Dominican.

The buffet at the resort had an assortment of salad dressings, vinegars, and oils. 

I tried pure balsamic dressing… once again it was okay. 

I tried a vinegar and oil dressing plus mixed herbs dressing…. better but not loving it. 

Then I gave up and tried just olive oil. 

Literally, just olive oil. 

Seemed too plain to love but…. I loved it!

I have since refined the olive oil salad dressing recipe by adding the secret ingredients.

Salt & Pepper!!! Who would have thought? It’s an olive oil salad dressing recipe with no vinegar!
