Eating more vegetables, like making delicious salads, is a great way to add more fiber and micronutrients like magnesium, zinc, iron and vitamin C to your diet. When it comes to making a kidney-friendly and heart healthy salad, remember that adding heart healthy fats and a low sodium dressing is key! This will help to manage your blood pressure, cholesterol, and kidney health. That’s why today, I’m going to share a few of my favorite homemade low sodium salad dressing recipes, plus I’m sharing store-bought low sodium dressings if you want something quick and easy!
Having a bottle of store-bought salad dressing in your fridge can be helpful when you are wanting to include more vegetables into your diet. You can make salads as your main course, have it as a side or even use the dressings as a dip for an appetizer! These are 7 of my favorite low sodium dressings you can find at most grocery stores.
This recipe is adapted from Spend with Pennies and is my favorite dressing of all time!
Another one of my all-time favorites is this delicious balsamic dressing made with ingredients you likely already have in the pantry.
