Homemade Salad Dressings for Labor Day

Whether you’re able to gather with friends or extended family this holiday, or are keeping things close to home, we have gathered the tastiest homemade salad dressings for Labor Day! I’ve gone from feeling like I always had to buy pre-made salad dressing to exclusively making my own at home. They really are so simple to make and typically only require a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand. 

I love using Koops’ Mustard for my salad dressings to give each one a different and unique flavor! And of course my go-to salad is greens, veggies, SunGarden sprouts, and a BurgerFit burger! Any of these dressings would be amazing with that salad combo. Check out these creative, delicious, and healthy homemade salad dressings for Labor Day that the whole family will love.

What They’re Saying

Not your typical burger with fries! I grew up just eating burgers with cheese, ketchup, and mustard alongside some fries...This burger offers more nutritional value while still being delicious to eat with the condiments that I love. A side dish of rosemary potatoes in place of fried french fries made it even better. This dish was a nice change from the average burger and had great flavor.


BurgerFit is a valuable resource to have at my office when talking about improving eating habits with my patients. It shows them that making healthier choices doesn’t mean giving up food that they know and love, and it helps them make the transition toward seeing food as a joyful part of self care, rather than something to feel guilty about.


Wait, these are healthy? If I had known, I wouldn't have eaten them...But they are good, so just don't tell me next time.


Trust me when I tell you these burgers are amazing!
I have had the wonderful opportunity to have them, and oh boy! My five-year-old even loved them. This is not your sneaky cook of the nineties, these are burgers your family will love. I cannot wait for the cookbook to come out so we can incorporate these into our weekly family meals.

    I love my salad to have a great mix of flavors and really good dressing. I love veggies and to have a perfect dressing to spice them up is important to me. I have made several salad dressings in the past, from yogurt ranch to sesame ginger and by far my most favorite is the lemon vinaigrette dressing. It’s everything my salad needs!
